I have a Jeep Wrangler with a bad engine, can i swap it out?

I have a 2000 4.0 5 speed wrangler with a bad engine and am trying to put a 4.0 from a 2006 four door wrangler in it. the 2006 was an automatic. The problem i have is the pilot bearing . the book shows the same from 1993 to 2006 but it looks like i need a different one of some sort. What do i need to do ?
the pilot bearing will have to be removed.... the automatic flywheel will need to be replace with the manual here is the main problem... the electrical system is different between the 2 motors. different crank sensors and communication between the 2 jeeps... i am not 100 % sure it will run when you get it installed. what i recommend is calling jeep and asking a parts specialist if there is a different part # for the 2006 motor and the 2000 motor.... i am willing to bet there will be more to switch than just the engine and flywheel....... before you go through this i would highly advise to please check on the engine part numbers.....

  1. Modern vehicles, these have been replaced with a powerful jet spray, without wipers. Some vehicles are fitted with wipers (with or without washers) on the back window as well. Rear-window wipers are typically found on hatchbacks, station wagons, sport utility vehicles, minivans, and some sports cars
