Driving my 2010 Grand Cherokee Laredo, made a nasty noise, then stopped. Turns out I just snapped a rod in the engine.

I had the 3.7L V6. My brother has a rebuilt 5.7L V8 in a totaled '99 Grand Cherokee.

Can I swap his in for mine? Is it a smart idea? (I would get it for free, or a really nice bottle of scotch...)

What would I and my buddy who's a Jeep guy and a mechanic have to do to convert? (He has a hoist and all tools, but no idea if we'd need a special plate for transmission, brackets for motor, or anything else...
