which mounts for a 4.0 swap?

I am getting a 2000 Cherokee 4.0 delieved in the near future for my Scrambler project, and I want to make sure I have all the pieces I need to put it in. I don't have a hoist or a stand so it will have to go right from the truck to the frame.
Which motor mounts do I use?(it had a 258 originally) Do the newer 4.0's have the same mounting points on the side of the block so I can use my old hardware? I am assuming this is the case, but I don't want to take any chances.

You use the 258's mounts. There's one hole on the driver side that requires a larger metric bolt, the rest accept the bolts from the 258.
