91 YJ engine swap. Need some help.

Link to the '91 Wrangler I want to buy.

The guy said the only real problem is the engine. It has 240,000 on it and it's a V6. I know they last long, but it's at the point where it's time to swap out.

I was wondering what engines I can swap into it that'll make a nice fit without any extra work involved. What year Cherokees, or wranglers can I swap?

Thank you, a lot.

1st thing its an inline six not a V6, If I recall any of the FI 4.0 will work but the later ones are better, from like '96 and newer.
Another popular swap seems to be a 4.3 GM V6 you will need an adapter and motor mounts.
Advance Adpaters and Novak both have a lot of info on these swaps.

'66 cj5 V6 powered Tux Park.
'94 YJ 4" Rough Country, 33s, locked rear.
'96 XJ wifes
'02 Ram Quad cab (Jeep hauler)

If you want to keep it simple, find another 4.0 so it will be a plug and play swap. If you upgrade to a V8, you will have to make some additional drivetrain upgrades other than just motor mounts and exhaust.
Real Jeepers do it topless.
