will this gas tank swap work???

I am currently needing to replace the tank in my 93 YJ (inline 6-4.0) and I got this email from this guy who has one and I am just wanting to know if this will work or not, here is the email...

I saw your ad that said you were in need of a YJ gas tank. I may have what you're looking for. I actually have a tank that I don't plan to use that came out of a 92 wrangler with the 4 cylinder. It was a fuel injected model. You may want to do the research on whether the fuel pump will work and how to wire it up. Or you may already have a working fuel pump. Like I said, it was a 4 cylinder, so it holds less gas than a 6 cylinder tank, but you can do the modification where you trim the vent tube inside the tank to allow the extra fuel to enter. The tanks are the same, just different length vent tubes. It includes the tank and the fuel pump. The jeep was running when I removed it less than a year ago. I did a 2.5 to 4.0 swap, and I switched out the fuel tanks since I already had it and I wouldn't have to splice the fuel pump to the factory wiring harness. I'd like to get $50 out of it, if that sounds fair. Let me know if you're interested.

yes it will work 87-95 gas tanks are the same execpt the hose as he stated , you can do the conversion which makes it a 20 gallon , in some cases you might need a 20 gallon sending unit because the gauge may not show accurately heres the link Jeep Wrangler 20-gallon Gas Tank Conversion

so since mine is the 6 cyl already would I just be able to leave everything the same and swap only the tank?
