Engine swap?

I have a 95 I6 w/5spd wrangler w/200,000 miles that has some lower end noise, mains i think or piston slap. Anyway i can buy a 96 I6 w/auto out of a grand ck w/86,000 miles for $250 w/out trans. Will this engine be a simple swap? Anything i will need or have to change? Thanks

Basically you need to use the longblock off the GC and everything else off yours. All your brackets, pulleys, etc

The engine looks very clean so i got it. After doing some more checking i see the block, head, crank all have different cast numbers than the 95. Does anyone know the difference? I read on one site the head has less flow than a 95. Also a rebuild kit is not the same for a 95. The 96 cost more than a 95.
