Engine Swap ideas for 97 jeep Wrangler

11932 6
I bought a 97 jeep wrangler about a year ago, and Iam thinking about swapping engines. It has the 4 cly in it now. Just want something stronger. Any ideas what will fit in it and if I will have to change the transmission.Thanks ahead of time for the info.

Unless you swap in another stock 2.5L 4cyl, you can count on also replacing the tranny as part of the swap. The AX5 (if you have it) can't really hold up to anything more powerful than the 2.5L anyways.


This is a really good resource that helps layout some reasonable/common options:

For the amount of money you'll end up spending and time involved you might break even selling that one and buying a 6 cyl Wrangler.
