Engine Swap

I am wanting to take out my old 2.5 L 4 banger and put in a 4.2L inline 6 under the hood of my 88 Wrangler. Can anyone please tell me where i need to start and about how many changes that will need to be done to be able to get this swap accomplished.

its alot of work.

mounts for both
wiring harness
maybe t-case
weld on new mounts
run wiring for 4.2 (which is like alt, a few sensors, and starter, ha ha ha)

it probably won;t be hard accept for the motor mounts but i can measure where mine are so you know where to weld the new ones in. keep your fuel return system intact and your should be fine fueling a carb.
A lot of teenagers are people who express a burning desire to be different be dressing exactly alike.
Panties aren't my favorite, but they're right next to it...
No one is normal, there are just a lot of weird people with things in common.
