Jeep Engine Swap

My 95 Jeep Wrangler YJ has a problem. It does not run. I am told the engine is the problem, something about warped heads of some kind. I was told that I should swap my existing engine out with a chevy small block because they are a dime a dozen and because it would give me more power. Is this switch easy to do and is it cost effective? Also, how much should I be willing to shell out for such a swap. Any input would be much appreciated.

engine swap

why not just swap in another of what you have already? or upgrade to the 4.0 if you have the 2.5?

i agree, any engine swap is gonna cost something. if you got 4.0 i'd stay with it. upgrading 4 banger is a good thing, 4.0 or 350 probably gonna cost around the same, except for fuel injection, a fuel injected 4.0 is better than a carbed 350 to me.
