this is incorrect if we consider the details.As long as it's an inline 6, you are ok. Just transfer over the heads and the rest of the bolt on stuff to the new block. Wranglers uses that motor up until 2006. Not totally sure on cherokees but I think early 90's to 2002 on those.
i have a 4.0 with 61k miles on it i can sell youI threw a rod in my 4.0 I6 (00' TJ) and I wanting to know if any AMC 4.0 will work for a swap, I know that Jeep has been using the 4.0 for a long time and if all will work whether out of a Cherokee or earlier model Wranglers?
Search google. I haven't done a swap. But when I was looking up ones for my jeep, I came across that the grand Cherokees 4.0l would fit. Now, I wouldn't take my word for it. Go look it up, I'm sure many people have asked the same questions as youdanhauer said:Alrighty found a 4.0 out of a 91' Cherokee for dirt cheap, would it be possible to drop it in?
In a word, NO. Although you could do it, the easiest swap is the same vehicle, same year. The further apart you are, the more wiring mods, sensors, etc. you need to change, install, and modify.Alrighty found a 4.0 out of a 91' Cherokee for dirt cheap, would it be possible to drop it in?
naw i decided just to rebuild it, thanks thoughWe had to swap my 4.0 out of my 03 tj earlier this year. The only one I could find for a decent price was out of a wj the main difference that we noticed was the water pump on the Cherokee is electric so we couldn't use the clutch fan on it. Someone on this site told me what years would work for mine. I'm not sure I'd have to go search my threads to see but there's differences from the years and model's. I can look and see if you need me to?
