Besides physically fitting a grand Cherokee V8 from a 2000 WJ what year is your TJ

2000 and older are CCD communication bus and starting in 2001 TJ went to PCI bus

All WJ are PCI bus and all ZJ are CCD bus

Besides PCM swap there may be skim issues as well as anti theft alarm associated with body control module. The BCM theft is easy to bypass if you have the grand Cherokee BCM to use while doing the perm disable

SKIM woul require one or preferable two chipped keys already learned by the WJ PCM and WJ skim module

Then of course tranny and exhaust issues and if you gotta pass emissions better be sure you have a WJ as new or newer than your TJ

However in my opinion the 4.0 is just about the ideal match for a TJ so I would not personally go down that road
