Replace whats in there, this is based on your asking the question to begin with, depending on your skills you can:
Pull and rebuild what you have with all new internal parts, thats if the block and head are good.
Pull and replace with a locally rebuilt
Pull and replace with a commercially rebuilt like Jasper.
Take it to your mechanic and have him/her put a new one in from the dealer or from a reputable rebuilder.
I had a jasper put in my 98XJ, 4.0L 6, cost me about $2500 installed. Got 7 year 70,000 mi warranty and if it blows up on the road all I need to do is find a jasper dealer/installer and it's covered. Friend of mine had his done here in Pa, blew 4 days later on his way to disneyworld, they swapped in a new one while they were there.
