Looking for an engine

Blew the 2.5 so I'm weighing my options on stock replacement or V8

Even with a 4.0 he's going to need a new tranny. I would either throw another 4 banger in it, or put a sbc or diesel in it.

Yep transmission and engine bundle were something I assumed he would know, I just wanna make sure he knows the Dana 35 rear end he has will not be happy with larger than stock tires and a larger engine.

No problem at all, just wanted the OP to know that a 4.0 and AX-5 or 30rh don't mix.
