Factor in another few hundred dollars on cleaners, oils, fluids, maintenance items, and other consumables during the procedure.
Whatever you THINK it will cost, double that and be happy when you are under budget. Or add up the basics and wonder why it cost SO much more in the end.
I just rebuilt my 6cyl, I had almost 600 bucks in just the bolt on parts, Gasket kit, timing chain cover, harmonic balancer, water pump, belts, rad hoses, heater hoses, spark plugs, distributer cap, rotor, plug wires, ign coil, pcv valve, clutch kit, ect. i did not want to put old used parts on a new engine build. Also look at a 4.3 v6, They are cheap to find, lighter than a 4.0/350 and make about 200 HP, of coarse you still need to do your homework and figure out what works best for you. Good Luck.
Honestly, I think the cheapest way to do it is remove the lift, sell the Jeep and buy one with a 4.0L.

Ive done the 2.5 to 4.0 swap. Not that difficult but i was doing a bunch of other things while i had it apart. Make sure you have the ax-15 mount plate and Tcase shifter. They can be tricky items to find in the middle of a swap.

It's not always cheaper to sell it and buy a 4.0 version. There's no way I could have picked up a 4.0 yj for anywhere near what I have invested in mine. I think I'm still under $2500 invested in mine, including the initial $1000 jeep.
