easiest...4.0...v8 requires a lot of mods....what r u trying to build? axles? tire size?
there's more to it that just dropping a v8 in it. there is a jeep in my crew with a stock 4.0 that can do anything the v8 jeeps can do and more.
in this video the red jeep is a v8 and the black jeep in a stock 4.0. both have 2.5 ton rockwell axles and 52" tires and pto wenches

more of the stock 4.0 jeep on 53" tires And 2.5 Ton Rockwells

1991 YJ
Custom chassis. 468 full roller chevy BB . 5 ton 2" overson axles in 2.5 ton rockwell housings. 57" v-tread R2 tires, Custom fabricated four link suspension with ford coil springs and dual shock setup.

I just love the jeep look. Not planning to off road. Want to cruise with a little more power while traveling.
