2.5L to 4.0L swap?

How hard it is to take a 6cyl from another tj and swap it into my 4cyl?
My parents are talking about getting my sister a 6cyl next year for her first car and this would be an option if reasonable...

Would it be better to just swap the toys off mine onto the new one?

it would be much easier to just move your stuff onto the new one when your parents get it, besides you would effectively be doing two swaps which is twice as much work and twice as many things to go wrong

I guess your right. I just really don't want to have to do the installs all over again. Some of them were PITAs. Maybe I could work a deal that my parents and her half the 2k I've put into it to go towards the 6cyl's upgrades... A fresh start... Sounds like fun

I am really confused at what you are trying to do. I am now reading this as your sister is getting a 4.0L Jeep next year and you planning to take all the aftermarket parts off yours and put it on hers?

Or are you two going to share the new Jeep?

The former. I already have one, she'll have her own as well
