2.5 engine swap

I have a '01 Wrangler with a 2.5 in it. I was wanting to swap it out and I am wondering which engine would be best and/or least expensive. Also, I know the transmission in there is a light duty one so I would need to get a new one as well, any ideas on that? What all needs to be done? What is a good site to get a conversion kit for the transmission to engine if they are not from the same vehicle?

There are many engine and trans combinations that will work. This site has a lot of good info. Novak Conversions - General Engine Conversion Options
If you are looking to do it cheap, don't rule out selling your Jeep and buying one with a 4.0L, they have good power and reasonable economy. It may be the cheapest option and most reliable. Good luck and keep us posted.
