What is the most poular engine swap. My 2.5 88 is starting to smoke. I can either rebuild it or swap it. Used engines are around $500. What would you advise for the easiest popular swap or rebuild. The 4 doesn't have enough power to lush the jeep very fast on the interstate, so I think rebuilding it is not an option. Have 33's now and thinkinf 35's later. Thanks
She's my density...
I'd say 4.0L, 350, and 4.3L are the most popular. I swapped in a 4.0L myself. Go to the stick for YJ FAQ and one of the first sections is the engine section and there are lots of good write ups on all of these swaps.
93' YJ 4.0L AX-15, 4" Pro Comp lift, 3/4" shackles, 1" BL, 33x12.5x15 BGF MT's, and some other stuff

Now is the time though, if you think you will eventually want a v8 or even a diesel nows the time. It really all depends on what you want and what you want to spend as well. I'd say the 4.0 swap is probably the cheapest swap and well worth is as the 4.0 is a great motor.
