I had a 96 Cherokee Country, the label on the side said it was a 4.0 "High Output"
Was there a difference in the 4.0's It seemed to have more power than my 97 4.0 TJ

|kodiakjoe1978||We had to swap my 4.0 out of my 03 tj earlier this year. The only one I could find for a decent price was out of a wj the main difference that we noticed was the water pump on the Cherokee is electric so we couldn't use the clutch fan on it. Someone on this site told me what years would work for mine. I'm not sure I'd have to go search my threads to see but there's differences from the years and model's. I can look and see if you need me to?|

From a pure legality aspect, the Feds want the same year or newer engine - so putting in an earlier engine causes you to fail initial inspection in any state that does smog testing. Even if that doesn't include your state, it would prohibit you from selling or registering the vehicle in a state that inspects.

|YHSublime||This doesn't really answer your question, but might put you on the right path. I talked to an junkyard this past weekend, and the guy there told me for my 1998 I-6, I could swap out with 97, 98 Cherokee parts (From an I-6 as well) because apparently they were the same engines.|

|danhauer||took a look at that website, I couldn't found anything to help me. the closest thing I've found to what I'm looking for is 4.0 out of 99' WJ. does anyone have advice on any conversions I will need for dropping this one in?|

for a 2000 TJ, you'll need a 00-06 block from a WJ or TJ. There are differences from the earlier versions...for example, the heads are different and the water pumps are different from what you have now.
I'd shoot for a 02-04 if possible. That should ensure you get a TUPY revision 0331 head, with the tapped bosses for the coil rail, and all the sensors should be the same.

|Wattapunk||As long as it's an inline 6, you are ok. Just transfer over the heads and the rest of the bolt on stuff to the new block. Wranglers uses that motor up until 2006. Not totally sure on cherokees but I think early 90's to 2002 on those.|

TJ Engine Swap
I threw a rod in my 4.0 I6 (00' TJ) and I wanting to know if any AMC 4.0 will work for a swap, I know that Jeep has been using the 4.0 for a long time and if all will work whether out of a Cherokee or earlier model Wranglers?
