The block is the same for the Jeep 2.4 and the SRT 2.4, just different internals. Since the block it the same itll bolt to the trans in the Jeep.

The liberty (KJ) use the sane 2.4 as our TJ's.
While that is true I have never seen a Liberty with a 2.4. They have all been 3.7's.

Idk about to bolting up but if you were to get the whole srt4 and use the harness and ecu that could be a mean jeep. I smell a new trend on WF cooking up

Turboed?
Wouldn't that be a plus???

Or, is there a downside to the turbo that I don't see?

Broken 2.4L

Toasted the motor in my jeep due to the P-Os cold air intake working as a cold water intake when crossing a puddle. My jeep is a 2005 2.4L with a 6sp tranny. having a hard time finding a motor in my price range up here in maine. $1500. is there an easy swap out to a different engine or an easier way to find a 2.4L. wouldn't think it would be a hard motor to find as I think they use the same in the dodge neon?
