Depends how bad the rust is and does it run? If it does and you know someone who is a mechanic and can look at it,i would do that.4 cylinder Jeeps like that are no speed demons,way underpowered and not really worth it to swap engines in my own opinion.Adding bigger tires will almost really put a strain on it.
