1993 Jeep YJ 4x4 to V8 2wd questions

I have a 93 yj that is in rough shape from axle to axle it also has the bullet proof 2.5........ I have been researching the v8 swaps and have determined I want to put something bigger then a 4.6/5.7. But it's going to be more of a highway jeep and less of a trail jeep so I was wondering if anyone has ever done something like a crown vic frame and engine into a yj frame. I was also looking into a manual trans to mate to a 4.6 or 5.7, then get a custom drive shaft to go to an 8.8 rear axle..... does anyone have any ideas or suggestions to other posts to hopefully help me in my process. All suggestions are appreciated and I know going from 4x4 to 2wd is not a popular idea but I would appreciate it if we could keep the ideas/comments to the more helpful side of things.

Were i to think about something like that, I'd be looking at a Mustang II graft job up front with 347 stroker/5spd tremec into a 9 inch.

If it's going to be a hwy queen (no offense intended), why not see if you could find a nice EcoBoost Ford engine, turbo'd. You can get a lot of power for smaller cubes and probably decent fuel mileage too.

What are your goals for the Jeep other than street use and V8? Do you want it to ride good? Handle OK? Go fast in a straight line? With a little ingenuity and some skills you can build it to do whatever you want.

Honestly I want a fast jeep that is smooth running, basic handling that's why I was thinking about a crown vic front and rear suspension but every time I look the only thing related to a crown vic part being used is the rear springs.

I have no idea about using crown vic parts. You could always just build a 4 link and run coil overs.
