Engine swap need info

I have a 88 yj and i am going to put a v8 in it. The problem is that i don't know what engine to run ford or chevy{ 351 or 350}. I have read that both are good swaps but what is better and easier on a small budget. I will be getting the engine from a junk yard. So if anyone has done eather of this swap any info will be helpful

ive never done the swap nor do i plan to swap my 2.5 but as far as which engine there is no contest. Go with the 350. replacement parts are dime a dozen and go fast parts are for the most part cheaper as well. both are reliable and make good power as drop in but i like chevy.
