The degree of difficulty and the amount of innovation and resourcefulness needed will vary depending on the swap. It's pretty much up to you to figure out what is needed, and seek out help and advice - if it's available. If this seems like too much for you, then maybe it's unwise to imagine you could finish the project successfully.

Some of the best bargains in Jeeps and cars generally are unfinished projects. Underestimating what's needed in time and money and effort seems pretty darn common. You need a place to work, the time to do the work, enough money to buy the parts and equipment, good health for the foreseeable future, and the cooperation of family and friends as needed. The WAF (wife acceptance factor) of a car project can get pretty low, especially as it takes longer and costs more than predicted.

Sorry, down off my soap box. I wonder if you know what's involved in something like this.
