As long as they are both 4x4 yes, the engines will swap over

I agree with Andrew. That will be a direct swap with no modifications.

In regards to modifications, what modifications need to be made if the bad motor was 4x4 and the good Motor is not?

Oil pan and oil filter adapter are different. They will just bolt off and on the other motor. It wouldn't be hard. After recently doing one I leave the remote filter adapter on the 4x4 in place when I take the motor out. Any other changes because of years would be minor like evap solenoid and coolant temp sensors
