3.0 to 4.0 swap...

im going to swap my 3.0 to a 4.0 and this is what ive been told.

get an explorer 4.0 4x4 and use the front axle and parts of the truck for the engine...

seems like that would be a smart thing to do...what else would i need for the swap...motor mounts, any custom work, should i replace the whole drive train?

Why not just go ahead and go for a explorer 5.0?
