New Motor Help

I have the chance to get my hands on a 2009 3.8 V6 & the tranny that goes with it. Is being pulled out of a new JK for a Hemi Project Build. Only thing is I don't get the wire harness or computer. Will any JK harness and computer from a salvage yard work? Or is this too big of thinking to work?

Oh this is to put in my 2000 TJ to replace the old 4Cyl & AX5.

If you're from CA check with the DMV before you spend money...The smog laws are a PITA and you can't just swap in anything (like other states can)and still register it.

In CA motor swaps are legal for same year or newer and all smog that came with the motor being swapped in.
