for your year truck i would go with a 302 or a 351W... more fun that way
but if you want a 4.0 you will need the wireing harnass ecu tranny ect... basically everything from your donar vehicle

you will need a new tranny and drive shaft... what rear end do you have now... you will want the 8.8 rear for a 5.0... are you thinking carb or FI

You're going to want to do lotsa of research. There's actually a book made for engine swaps, hopefully someone else will chime in. go to www.therangerstation.com and search their forums because they have more older 5.0 guys. You're grandpa is sitting on a sweet engine.
