4.2 getting tired, what to do?
i have owned my '89 Jeep Wrangler Laredo for going on 4 years now. I bought it with 150k miles, just rolled 192k miles, still have the original engine and Auto tranny. I need to replace the engine or have it rebuilt. What are my options. I'm thinking of keeping the 4.2 configuration and building it up, but is there more i could do for the same money? Also how much would it cost for an engine swap? I'd really like to have this ready for summer. I got a quote of $3500 from one shop, which seemed outrageous since i can buy the engine new with a 7 yr warranty for under $800. Help me out Jeepers, remember the wave, happy Jeepin.
