My 5.7 Hemi Install into a 97 Jeep Wrangler TJ

New to forum-
Picked up a 08 Ram 5.7 Hemi from a 2500 4x4 with the 5-45rfe to put into my Wrangler. I just got back my reprogrammed ram computer and my wrangler, now Hemi, harness. I'll post pics as soon as I am allowed. Anyone else out there doing the same?
