Newb Question

Got my first wrangler Very excited about it. It is a 88 and a 4 banger 5 speed .but that is not near enough power (my other car is a corvette) so looking to replace the 4 popper with either a 6 or 8 cyl. Can some one give me an idea of how hard that conversion is? Do i need a new trans and transfer case?

will the rear end handle it?

would a 6cyl be an easier conversion? i have found them used very reasonable.
