I need to make a decision on whether to replace my 2.5L or make the change to the 4.0L. My YJ is in reasonably good shape with 120K miles. I sucked in water and busted the crankcase. I plan on towing the jeep behind a truck and camper to use it for hunting/off road exploring etc. This is not my daily driver but I do like to drive it around town and to the beach in the summer. Any advice, especially technical would be great. Thanks
If you plan on towing it, as long as you don't plan on putting huge tires on it, I would recomend staying with the 4 banger. From what I've heard, swapping in the six takes a lot of work (new computer, tranny, etc). The 4 has plenty of power for offroad and weighs less. But if you plan on building up the Jeep a fair amount or do much highway driving, the six would be nice.
I own a Rubicon, its on layaway with Quadratec...on a part-by-part basis

I just got a 2.5 4 cly from them. I just got my jeep back from having it installed, and it is great.
It only cost 1650.00 And comes with everything you need and all preassembled.
