With the Golen there is a lot of little stuff that you're going to need. I.e. new motor mounts because there is so much torque from the motor and it will possibly snap the stock ones. I almost bought the Golen then decided that the price was not as effective as what I could do with a stock Atk motor.
Atk is 2k with a $500 core- free shipping to and from.

What year is you tj?

This sounds like a typical OPDA failure.

Either way best of luck to you I hope you get a good chance to upgrade

I dread the day my 4.0 gives up but 176k and still pulling strong even though I'm as little mean to her sometimes haha

You don't need new motor mounts for a Golen motor I just replaced my 4.0 with one and have no problems, worse part is buying new injectors. There around 300.00. I did a lot of extra stuff I didn't need to do though I ended up spending about 4000.00 by the time I was done.

There are several threads online recommending changing the motor mounta, Didnt say you absolutely had too- the motor itself is $3799 so with $300 in injectors plus all the other stuff u said u did i think u may be low balling yourself. Thats 4099 with out your mods. Im jealous as heck though- just didnt seem to add up for me so i chose the atk replacement engine..it runs great
For my atk replacement i was 2500 for the motor with a $500 core plus i had toget a new header, bolts, sensors, so i was around $3000 without the tranny and clutch stuff..
Plus i have 3.07 gears--for now---so the golen woulda destroyed my rear end in no time lol
