hmmm ive never eally heard of ppl having problems witht he 4.0, i would assume the easiest thiong to do would be to buy another jeep witha 4.0 that snot a lemon, but for an engine sap, you can get a new 4.0 from the factory, or put in like a V6

If your gonna go through the trouble of doing a swap, either replace it with another 4.0L or a V8.

The only reason it would need head work is it it was overheated and ran like that for some time to warp the head. Even then its hard to as both the head and block are both cast iron.

I'mthinking the previous owners took shitty care of it.

the head gasket blew between #3 and#4 cyl. just having in checked out to make sure. all the problems started when someone borrowed the jeep. was just wondering if anyone had done a swap on here yet. i've read it's an easier swap with a newer 360 because alot of stuff will match up. but i would still lean more to the 350, maybe even stroke it.
