cannot decide, 4.3 vortec?

Probably like a lot of you guys I make a little extra money scrapping autos to pay for my jeep addiction. Tonite I bought a wrecked 1998 chevy 4x4 truck. did not think much about it until I noticed it only had 98,000 miles and a nice running complete 4.3 vortec in it. I cannot decide to pull this motor,wiring harness, and computer and bolt it into my 94' yj ( 2.5 liter).
Has any one done this? is it worth my time and effort?
94' wrangler 4 cyl. 5 speed D30/8.8 ARB
82' scrambler 350 TBI/700r4 D30/Currie 9"
07' JK sahara
Whats the deal with the facebook crap?? ->->->->

Absolutely worth it! It's a pile of work, but you have an incredible improvment when you are done. I put the 5.3 in my Commando with an SM420 and an Atlas and love it! Been running it 4 years now. If I had it to do over again, I'd put the V6 in.
