Different bell housing, different overall length, different transmission computer. You are better off rebuilding the one you have as it will save you both time and money in the long run.

I have to disagree. From what I have read on some other forums it is quite a good swap . neither automatic that came in a Wrangler holds up very well . The AW4 has been swapped in by many . If the whole XJ is avaiable it makes it easier . Their are complete write ups on this because the AW4 is so reliable . I will see if I can locate it for you but I have read a coouple how to's . I personally feel its well worth the work . heres one for now AW-4 Transmission Swap - 1

It's not a bad swap at all, many Jeepers have installed them into their TJs. Read up on the AW4 swap on Stu's website via the link that Gary2 provided above. A few holes have to be drilled & you have to figure out the wiring but many non-genius Jeep owners have installed them.
