Help with TC removal and replacement

So, I bought a beautiful 00 XJ. Hardly any rust for a Michigan truck. The motor seized, and I've been without wheels 2 months. I found an exact replacement coil pack 4.0 motor with 110k for $300, She sounds beautiful and ran strong(rear end accident). I've got everything ready for removal completely except the exhaust (rusted, have to cut off(exhaust and intake manifold removed from block)) and the tranny and engine mounts.

I have the torque converter still on my donor motor. They pulled it from the tranny instead of disconnecting the flywheel from the TC.

So, my question; Would it be easier to take my blown block out the same way(converter and all) and put the donor on there with the TC already on or put my old TC on the new block? How do I proceed?

I have to get a hoist yet so I figured I'd seek some experience first, maybe ask some seasoned XJ experts. Usually running a GM. 😂😂


I can do pictures if it helps. Trying to get out to NM for a life change and this XJ is my way.

You will want to unbolt the TC from the flexplate and leave it in the transmission. Once it is loose, push it back into the bellhousing and remove the engine. Trying to R&R the TC with the engine will invariably lead to seal damage and possibly pump damage.
