you obviously don't know a whole lot about the jeeps but there is almost nothing that is a bolt in on that swap. Trans, Tcase, Tranny skid plate, engine mount frame brackets, rad, wiring harness, ECU, drive shafts are all different between the 2.5 and 4.0 just to start. You can reuse the alternator, steering pump, and water pump.

if you are serious about a v8 conversion it will cost a big chunk of money and doing your own labour is only way to really save $$, that and buying a drivetrain that is complete and matching. like a 350 chevy to sm465/TH350/700r4 with a 203/205/208/241c tcase, so you can avoid buying an expensive adapter. also chances are your axles are d30 and dana 35 in the jeep so they would need to be replaced with d44's or better axles.. many axle options out there..

if you arenot doing any labour on the swap i would expect that cost alone to be $4000 or more depending on how you want the finished product to be.

Might be best to ditch it for a 4.0. Either that or open up that wallet...
