Default swap in a 4.0 from a 3.0?

i have a chance to get a 4.0l out of a 2001junker with only 84000 miles for free. here is what i want to know. the 4.0 was not in a 4x4 and my truck is would that swap out the same? and as far as the size would the 4.0 fit into the 3.0 with out to much chopping of the mount or would it fit right in? also my truck is a flex fuel and the i be leave the 4.0 is not would that make a deference?

it will fit right in the hole like it's meant to be there. however, you will need to change your trans, computer, wiring, engine mounts, hoses, probably radiator, throttle cable, fuel system being flex fuel, etc. none of your 3.0 parts will work with a 4.0
