So I got this jeep that has a blown motor. It's a 97 4.0 and is in great shape other than that. My only question is, money wise which is more feasable, a stroker kit, or just drop in another 4.0? To add a little to that question, If I was to drop another 4.0 in, What years can I take the motor from? I know I can get them from Cherokees and such as long as they are a 4.0. From what a friend has told me, I can use any year 4.0 block as long as I keep my head and intake/exhaust. Is this correct?
I got this jeep for a steal(it was given to me for free) and I want to get it running. It's similar to the one in my sig but with bigger tires and a beefier front end.
The stock 4.0 bottom end is not fixable from what I can tell... It shot a rod through the oil pan. I'm worried the head might be messed up too so please figure that into the equation.
