You need to change everything. Motor mounts, computer, wiring harness, move to an electric fan, use the 249 t-case cause that lil dana 35 wont take much abuse from the 5.9 It's going to be A LOT of work. You need the whole 5.9 exhaust system or you will have to have one made, you need the intake from the 5.9 or buy a K&N system. If this is your daily driver make sure you buy a kick around car to drive while you do this swap. It wont be a weekend kind of job. The 5.9 is nothing like any other ZJ believe be i just bought one and im finding this out each time i try and find parts for it. A lot of stuff is dealer only and not cheap. Electric fan switch for example $100 and the 5.9 uses 2 to kick the fan on at 2 different speeds. No clutch fan on the 5.9

It seems to me like you would be better off if you just focussed on paying off the debt you still owe on the jeep, instead of trying to make it some kind of rediculous monstrosity that you can't afford.
