motor compatability

Not sure if this should be in tech or general so I thought tech since it is a tech question.
My buddy has a family of Jeepers. He a JK on 37's, his wife a TJ Sport on 35's and his daughter, a stock 4 banging TJ.
Daughters Jeep blew a rod and my buddy is looking for a replacement engine. Does anyone know of any better 4 bangers that bolt up without a ton of modding or is he better off sourcing a Jeep 4 banger?

Anyone know of a 4 banger in the Central part of NC?

My daily driver is a 2015 JKU on 35's 4.56 and Trutracs, My trail rig is my 1997 TJ on 35's 4.88 and Trutracs plus a pile of cash....

As far at crate engines go, ATK and Jasper are probably the most common unless you decide to go with a used/rebuilt.

Anything but the Jeep 4cyl block is going to require lots of customization.
