If this motor dosnt work jeep and extra 4.0 for sale.

About to say the hell with this jeep always wanted one but finding out there a money pit and impossible to fix around here .Found out the engine 4.0 i picked up was an 2000 like i was told to get but this one has a distributor, my 02 has coil packs, guess in the middle of 2000 they switched, so still wondering did i waste my cash on this engine or will it work dont mind making brackets for coils as some others said but will rest of my parts work?Why would they do this mid year kinda stupid for people trying to buy parts.

Why not transfer over needed parts from the old motor?

Jeeps can get expensive real quick but the TJs are pretty easy to work on and the 4.0 is a great engine so dont give up on her just yet. Also there are plenty of great sites such as this one to lend a hand at any time you need help. I personally think the Jeep community is the best in the world.
