4.0L questions

Recommended Posts

I'm slowly but surely doing the 4.0L/4x4 swap in my 86. Since its getting hard to find a decent donor for cheap that isnt a pos I'm going to try to piece it together from jy parts.

I think I'm gonna start by pulling a motor and tranny and rebuilding the motor if it needs it and then go from there.


Few questions:

What year cherokee should I look for an engine donor?

Any particular parts I should look out for?

rebuilds aren't exactly cheap. I think you'd likely still be better off spending the extra bucks on a decent donor with a good drivetrain but a bad body. heck, some guys have purchased perfectly good XJs (97+s in particular) and then gutted them for their swap. All depends in what you want in the end.
