Engine swap

Hello all,
I have a 1993 wrangler with the 4.0 L 6 cylinder engine. I recently got an opportunity to buy a 1997 wrangler for a good price. The 97 also has the 4.0 L but has over 200000 miles on it. I know thats not too bad especially considering the fact that my daily driver is a cherokee with 220000 miles on it. My question is this: is it possible to swap the older engine out of my 1993 wrangler and put it into the 1997 wrangler and if so what would be involved and also what else if anything would I have to switch over? It's the same size engine and same model vehicle but the year difference makes me uncertain. I'm not sure if I could drop the motor right in or if I would have to switch over a lot of the components. Any help would be greatly appreciated.
