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.

+1 ^^

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
