Hey everyone just wondering if a 98 Jeep TJ motor would work in a 2000 Jeep TJ? It is a 2.5 4cyl 5 speed stick 4x4 VIN#P. Or even better if anyone knows where I could pick one up @ would be even better.

i dont know about fitment but i know in some states (especially california) they do not allow you to put in an engine older then your car ... like you cant put a 2000 engine in a 2008 car has to be your year or newer.

I recently replaced my 2.5 on my 97 and a couple of auto salvage places told me 97 and 98 motors could fit each other only.Dont quote me on that.You can try and search auto salvages,near you, if you want to go that route.Will run you about 1k.
