Best Place to Buy 4.0 Engine

I have water in my oil and in my exhaust. Scraping noise before it happend so I think more than head gasket. Need to take a look but would imagine a new engine is needed. Maybe I have a rod through the block. Its a 95 Sahara 4.0. What are your ideas on where to get the best stock rebuilt engine? Quadratech looks kind of high. Need good cost and good engine. Live in upstate NY.

Also check your local parts stores. Oreilies, Napa, Autozone. Long block seems to make the most sense.

Thanks for the links. Rebuilt Auto Engines is one I was looking at. I realy wouldn't look at places like Autozone but thanks for the heads up. Any other places to look into?

There are quite a few shops in my area that install Jasper engines.

X2 on Jasper, although I only bought a 2.5 from them about 15 yrs ago. The first one ran great for about 20,000 miles. Then I drove into a small pond and threw a rod. I learned. The second lasted great, but I sold it. But they were easy to work with.

I rebuilt my own 4.0. So far so good.
