Front wheel drive vs rear wheel drive, totally different set up, plus there is no room under the hood for that v6. I would hope for a 1.8L turbo with 200hp and 210 torque. That's my wish.

It can be done but will be cheaper to buy a brand new JK then that swap will cost after all is said and done.Biggest cost will be the labor and getting all the computers to work.
