The engine blocks are the same. I think the intake / map sensor maybe a tad different. I would check your local salvage yards.

It should be a straight swap because you are just using the block. You can swap whatever you need from your old block/head to attach to the new block .It may include your current intake,exhaust manifold and feul management system. Some of the accessories may be in different places but that should be solved by using your old accessory brackets. If the head is still good on the TJ, you may want to swap it since it's newer. Just fyi, when calling salvage yards, just make sure to have them check other models.

Thank you so very much i really did not think about swaping heads. I have the motor and all in the jeep now just not running for crap. I will try the head swap and map sensor and go from there. Thank you again you are a life saver.
