First Jeep 2000 TJ

Hey folks. I bought my First Jeep 2/12/16. Its a 2000 TJ Sahara. I got a good deal on it. I feel good about it anyway. It has the 4.0 with a 5 speed. Power steering and A/C. The engine does have a rod knocking. It has 217,095 miles on it. The body is solid and the frame is solid. I'm looking to do an LS swap in it for starters. So any links and/or advice to getting this done please to share. I'm not a stranger to 4wds or engines. What I want to do is a 5.3 with a 4L60E. I want to keep the A/C and the factory gauges. The EVAP I think I want to keep. I don't want to set off any check engine lights if I can help it. I've been told I can use a 92+ S-10 transmission to transfer case adapter and S-10 transfer case and keep the 27 spline output/input shafts. A friend of mine did this set up to his 94 wrangler. He used the back half of the stock yj transfer case and S-10 front half. He did mention having to drill into the adapter for for a speed sensor. Any confirmation on how to do this would be appreciated. Also wiring. How to mate the two computers together. Thank you in advance. I'm sure I will ask dumb and common questions. Be gentle.
