88 wrangler 4 to 6cyl swap

i just found an 88 wrangler on craigslist but the tranny is shot and its a 4cyl.
a friend of mine has a complete 258 6cyl drivetrain. what should i know before trying this swap? im unsure of the motor mount locations because i dont have the 88 in front of me.

please help

Frame mounts are in different locations...so your gonna have to cut um off and reweld them. Ur also gonna have some wiring harness challenges....and you might have to change the t-case depending on what your input spline count is. Also, your tach's not gonna read right either.
