I think you'd probably be better off sticking with a 4.0. I don't know for sure but I believe the transmissions are different not to mention the wiring, ECM and mounts.

As Newman said if you are low on money then rebuild or swap in another 4.0l SOHC
The SOHC engines are the newer 4.0l, not related to the 1990-2000 4.0l OHV

Swapping to a different engine requires:
wiring harness
Maybe instrument cluster and GEM
So not a budget job
