cornbrizzle, that's quite a trip for me, as I don't want to take the risk of my engine blowing up somewhere in between. Plus that'd be quite a bit of gas...But maybe I will order the kit from him though.

I want to keep it stock, because I've read that strokers don't last as long. Maybe in the future I'll build one, but not at this time.

I'm going to give LKQ a call today to see what their policy is on used motors.

i just ordered a reman from marshall engines outa nebraska.. it was $1595 shipped, including the $395 core charge.. it came with a 3yr 100,000 mile warranty.. ive heard good things about them and i figured with as much driving as i do if any thing tears up on it ,it will do it befor the warranty is up.. but hopefully nothin will tear up (fingers crossed)... good luck

That is not a bad price if it includes the core charge? I am assuming that this is a long block setup?

Seems like a reasonable cost for that kind of warranty.

Might have to look into their company.

Wow...yeah, that is a good price. I have never looked for a crate motor, wanted to do a rebuild myself. Hmmm.... tempting.

My buddy works at AutoZone.
District mgr gut for years and is a Ford nut. He rebuilds his own motors and is areal gear head

He told me that AZ has 5 companies they use. Their remans run $1800 Plus a core.
I can't recall which company he recommended at this point but when teh day comes I'd do it just because AZ is close to my house for the shipping. Also if it fails I just pull it and throw it through the front window.

On the other hand my buddy offered a rebuild with warranty for $1600. No core. He's in Detroit though.
He built my 460 in my Fairlane. I may even go this route since he offered a 100K 3 yr warranty

I tried searching for some info, but couldn't find it. Which years of 4.0's will fit into my Jeep? 92-96? Will I need to pull the computer from the donor too? I'll be getting an engine within the nest week. Just waiting on the tax return.

I'll be doing a write up once I start tearing apart the motor and rebuilding it.

any HO engine will fit in your jeep (91 and up)... the non HO engines (pre 91) will also fit but then you will have to change the computer, wire harness, exaust manifold, ect..
