Have not done it personally, but I saw a blurb in a 4x4 mag some time ago about this swap. The external dimensions actually make it smaller than the Jeep 4.0L, so it should fit just fine.
Considering the money involved with swapping in an engine, I think you would get better bang for your buck by swapping in a 5.0L

The best thing to do would be to get a Ford bellhousing and transmission, then adapt that to your t-case. I know you can find B/Hs to fit a NP435 to the 4.9L.
