1996 5.2l V8 into a Wrangler?

Hi all, im new to this thread and figured i'd make my first post. I have a 1996 Grand Cherokee Laredo with the v8 in it and was wondering how hard it'd be to get it into a Wrangler? The grand cherokee was unfortunatly totalled but is very much still drivable, as it is my DD right now. Mainly, what would be involved (mounting, electronics, trans) in getting that V8 into a Wrangler? Also, if any, which year wrangler should i be looking for to do this swap into?

Thanks,
Rich

Oddly enough, I've never heard of the 318 going into a Wrangler. Everyone seems to go for the chevy smallblock. I expect there are parts suppliers out there for mounts and stuff, and whatever else you'll need, a good machinst can probably fabricate for you. I would undertake this job without being or knowing one though. You'll need to consider the entire driveline and suspension as well.
