I think you got all the info you need right here. If you ask SPECIFIC questions. You'll get answers.

Are you going with a 5.0? EFI? What tranny are you trying to use? Do you have any tools for fabrication or are you trying to buy everything? Even if it hasn't been done, this board is helpful and always full of opinions.

But just asking a general question.. leaves too much area to fill in.

H8 monday has a 5.0 in his wrangler. Granted it's not a TJ (read: it has square headlights), but it would be a similar fit. Search for cobra and you should find some of the previous posts on this.

There is a company that has some of the parts/info if you are trying to buy. Their site is bad, but they will go over stuff on the phone:

I think that is a great swap for many reasons, but what tranny/tcase are you going to put in?
