Advance Adapters and Novak both make adapter kits. I prefer Advance because they go into greater detail on what will and won't fit your Jeep. Check them out.

try advanced adapters if your hooked on the inline 6 or go with a chevy 4.3l v6 out of a late 80's to early 90's pickup they get decent fuel mileage and decent power.not as much torque as straight 6 but it's still a decent motor

    My Jeep does strange things. Driving straight it's ok until I either speed up or let off the gas, then it pulls to the left and right. I have new front motor mounts, good tires, brakes fine.
