All about that unibody life.
Sure, I would put in a japanese engine in my jeep from the company that about sucked the life blood out of our auto industry. As far as mileage, it doesn't matter what engine you put in a brick of a wrangler, it won't be that good. If I wanted a powerful 4 banger with good lowend torque, I would use the ford duratec 2.5. However, if your gonna go to the trouble of an engine swap, you might as well go for more displacement as mpg really isn't a factor because of the way our jeeps are built. It does show your thinking and willing to step out of the box and thats a good thing. A jeep with a peppy 4 cylinder would be a good project. Jeep played with it a little bit in 03 with the DOHC 2.4 and bumped hp to 150. The ford 2.5 duratec has 170-180 hp with decent lowend. The honda civic SI has 200 hp out of a 2.0, but it's all topend, no lowend guts. That would suck off road. A good turbo'ed 4 cylinder diesel would make the sweet ticket for off road.
1987 wrangler, 258 I-6, 5-speed.
2007 liberty sport 4X4, automatic
2009 ford ranger 4x4 FX4 OFF/ROAD, 5-speed
