engine swap from 95 cherokee into 98 wrangler

i'm wondering if the engine/tranny from a 1995 cherokee will fit into my 98 wrangler. got someone local whose selling the whole cherokee for relatively cheap and wondering if the whole engine/transmission/axles/driveshafts/diffs could all transfer over? any help would be appreciated.

what engine do you have in your rig now?

Keepin the peace.

The difference between sport and combat is that in combat you bury the one who comes in second.

Better Idea and still save money

You can do something like that but there is a lot of work and money involved. MY recommendation is to pick up a 5.2 or 5.7 from grandcherokee and do the swap it it is going to cost the same either way and makes more sense even if your doing swap yourself. I have a 2.5 jeep 98 and thats what I am going to do I have engine and tranny sitting in my garge right now

does all of that directly bolt on? or is there a lot of modifications to the body that need to be done?
