A good deal?

I have a 92 YJ with the 2.5 in it there's a guy who is willing to swap my chassis for the six cylinder that has a 4.0 out of a TJ in it and just drop my body on the frame and hook everything up for 2200 is this a good deal?

I think this question lacks way too much information, most important being the level of trust you have in his abilities.

Well he seems reliable and my friend is doing an engine swap with him this week. He parts out jeeps and sells them and he just parted out a wrecked TJ with 115000 miles on the motor so instead of cutting off the motor mounts and welding new ones he has a 6 clyinder frame he said I could swap for my 4 clyinder one if my buddies motor swap pans out I was wondering if this would be a worthy price for an engine swap

If you think his work is good, and that includes all the labor and what not, I would say $2200 is cheap. Almost too cheap...

Edit: Forgot to ask, what about tranny, TC, driveshafts, rear axle, etc..?
