You are wron the 2.8 2.9 and 4.0 all have the same bolt patern and the transmition can be mated between them. The question is what flex plate or clutch you need to use with them and if its an a4ld how long will it last. Additional info is needed on the exact swap to help ive done several 4.0 swaps pm me if you need more info
