1991 to 1995 4.0s are the best, and easiest swap.

1996 to 1999 will also work, but you will have to do a little more work (convert the engine from OBD2 to OBD1, figure out the gauge temperature...

Very few people put in a V6.

Many more do a V8 or a 4.0L.

Any YJ engine swap requires a ton of parts:

Engine Wiring Harness
ECU
Transmission
