^^By "others," he means the YJ forum, which you can find here. You're in the JK section, which applies to Wranglers from 2007 to current.

For starters you're going to need a 4.2 or 4.0 engine. You're also going to need the transmission. Then you take out the 2.5 and transmission and put the new ones in.
