Old 4.0l swapped into a newer jeep

Hey guys so I have a question for you all. I've tried researching this but with not a lot of luck. A buddy of mine just had the 4.0l in his 02 grand cherokee go out and is needing a new one. Now I have a 96 cherokee with a good running 4.0 that I'm partingl out do to a bent frame. I'm wondering if it will be possible to put my engine in his jeep or if it won't work do to different engine castings, ecu, ignition etc. I know that his has coil packs and mine has a distributor but it looks possible to switch. If I use all my components and ecu and just put the engine in that way would it work? Any help would be greatly appreciated

If both of the engines are autos then u can just swap it in, I don't think u need to change the ecu or anything
