Cowboy17 Buy a used donoer jeep with a good motor.
Part out everything possible.
Sell the rest to the scrapyard.
If the donor is around 1200 you can easily break even, especially if the tires are any good.

Cashcrazy I was curious and checked a engine builder out of Dallas that I would use for a long block. The AMC 2.5 is $845. I bet someone in your area would be close.

it might be easier to sell yours and just buy a stock 4.0 and put in another lift
and other bolt ons that you had on your 2.5

Ibuildembig I just had one done a month ago and it was 1250

Cashcrazy I think I would call local engine machine shops and see what they would charge to rebuild yours. I think it would come in the same price or cheaper.
