best year 5.3L for conversion

Considering putting in a 5.3L, 4L60E combo in my 94, 5 spd YJ when I do the rebuild. For that, what would be the best year of 5.3L/4L60E combo to use? I would look at getting a complete wrecked vehicle to be able to canibalize it throughout the build. Currently have D30 & D35 and would hold on changing them right now.

Hopefully use a 231C front half and keep the XFER case in the same location.

The vehicle currently does not have A/C or cruise and that would be two things that I would definitely put in the rebuild. That raises the issue of control of the CC. Ideally it would be good to use the steering column from the 5.3L vehicle and keep the lever, but then there is the problem of compatibility of the wiring.
