I say swap it in! :D But then I have a sucker for tough projects.

 

But before you do, go look at the advanceadapters.com or novak engineering websites. They'll have what you need to do it right, and it might not be cheap. :(

The 4.3L Vortec V6 is no picnic to work on - even for the simplest of things like spark plugs. I'm not sure if the engine bay of an MJ/XJ would help or hurt its ease of access.

yeah, i'm not saying its a bad piece because they make some good power, and don't seem to be as prone to leaks as the FWD 3500s and stuff are but it's not much fun.

BY no means am I saying it's a shoddy engine, either. I've got a '98 Blazer that I've been daily driving for the last 10K miles and I've been extremely pleased with the performance of the engine. Has plenty of power and can still pull off 23-24 MPG on the highway if you drive it right. I was contemplating getting a 4.3L V6 for one of my MJ projects, but I wasn't ready to tackle such a project.
