hey im gonna try do a similar swap in the not to distant future, i got an 88 yj with a tired old 4.2, but i have a 305 i pulled out of my camaro with lots of life left in it. so i found a kit from advanced adapers with everything you need except a flywheel for 1500, but i dought your tranny can hande the power since it came with a four cylinder
