5.3 or 6.0 questions for a TJ.

I have read a lot of the 5.3 swap thread and it is more geared to how do you do this, and doesnt answer my questions.

My 6 cyl is knocking, and I want to swap it with a 5.3 or 6.0. What all is needed? I know I will have to change the motor and tranny but what about the transfer case? I have the NP231

If I do the swap and get all of the parts including the t/c, will the computer need to reprogrammed for the jeep?

Is there a wiring harness I can buy that hooks up to the jeep connectors that will control all of the gauges?

Can I still run A/C?

I am sure there is some motor mounts that can be purchased and welded on. right?

Will I have to do any body modifications?

I want to make the decision whether or not to do the swap and keep the jeep, or fix the 6 cyl and sell it. I dont mind the work, but I dont want to have this thing down for too long either.
