I HAVE A '86 XJ 4X4. IT HAS THE 2.8L IN IT WITH A BAD TRANNY. WILL A 4.0L I6 FROM A '00 CHEROKEE FIT WITH LITTLE TO NO MODIFICATIONS?

I bought a 1986 Jeep XJ Wagoneer 4x4 for $400 from a buddy of mine. It has the 2.8l V6, but it has a bad transmission, and this motor doesnt have the power I need. There is a wrecked 2000 Cherokee XJ with 130,422 miles for $275 at a local junkyard, and the motor, transmission and interior are like new.

You can fix the body damaged easier then removing and installing a motor and trans. And its a newer car.
