Engine Swap for TJ in Georgia

So I basically plan to find a Ram 1500 4x4 as a donor and do a conversion....to be honest with you guys I have never done something like this before and I dont even have enough tools to pull a project like that...still in school and living on an apartment that I rent in Atlanta...so my question is about someone that is reputable that can make this swap here in Georgia...i plan to source all the parts needed and hey Im willing to take a week or more off at work to help out in the swap but i just need someone with knowledge and talent that can do the welding of the engine mounts and any other modifications.

I saw a guy on pirate 4x4 that wanted the hemi swap but opted for this because of price and availability.

Yeah, that is a lot from what I've seen on this forum. I have a garage but I have never done a motor swap and do not have a cherry picker so all I can do is assist someone else. If I had the experience I would offer.
