YJ to CJ engine swap

I have a 86 CJ that has not run in years and a 89 YJ that is functional. Will the YJ straight 6 and transmission fit in the YJ?

Thank you,

Without knowing that transmission was in your CJ and what transmission you have in your YJ, I would say no. The engine and trans wont just bolt up. It will fit for sure but I don't believe it will just bolt up.
