Do some research before just ripping everything out.
Some engine swap providers go as far as to run both the old ECM and a new ECM for the engine side-by-side, as so much of the JK systems depend on the CANbus.
Headlights, turnlights, horn, wipers, tach, speedo, cruise and much much more all run through the CANbus. If you are building a trail rig that gets trailered everywhere, then maybe you don't need any of that. But if you expect it to be streetable then ripping it all out might be a losing proposition.
