Need advice!
I have a 1999 Grand Cherokee that needs a new engine... this may be a dumb question, I'm not sure. But what is in my Jeep now is a V8 4.7 L engine. I have found an engine from a 1998 Grand Cherokee that is a V8 but it is a 5.2 L. Can I put that in my Jeep or do I need to find one that is a 4.7 L?? And is a '98 engine interchangeable with a '99??

No they are not interchangeable i think
This is regular cherokee XJ, you need GRAND Cherokee WJ

It can be done, but its a ton more work, you'd need the donor computer and such, i doubt the motor mounts line up and im not sure the tranny will bolt up.

Thanks, looks like I will keep on looking for a better match!
