Check Jasper motors for a new shortblock.

You mean like all new or just rebuilt? I bought my 4.2 long block through AutoZone, Kragen also had them from the same company but AZ was about $250 less. That was from Evergreen Engines out of Spokane WA.

Like said above, you can get the Reman'ed ones from Autozone for around $1600 bucks with a warranty.

Why not just get a whole new one at that point?

Personally I would just get a 4.0L motor out of a junk Cherokee if mine was about to bite the dust because it would be a lot cheaper and Cherokee's are a dime a dozen at the junkyard.

As far as getting a new one, I don't know what kind of warranties are offered with crate motors but with the reman'ed ones they do and they tend to be a lot cheaper as well. But like I said, I would rather pay a couple hundred bucks for one out of a cherokee.

To the OP, this might sound like a dumb question, but what exactly do you want? A long block? If the straight 6 isn't a long block then what is considered a long block? I'm not trying to sound like a d-bag, I'm just not sure what you're looking for.

Yes the I6 is long but that's not what he meant.

Long block usually refers to a complete remanufactured engine, usually with complete heads as well. Short block is usually the opposite - a bare block with no internals or assembled parts.

No. Long block is the complete rotating assembly plus head, new or rebuilt makes no difference.
Short block is just the rotating assembly no head.

OK thanks, so what I had mentioned earlier about the reman'ed engine from Autozone was correct. It has everything but an oil pan, valve cover, exhaust, intake etc. Anyway, I think a brand new motor is around $3500 but I'm not 100% on that. Good luck with your engine search.

I paid $1600 for my long block 4.0 from Jasper engines but that was 5 years ago, I also got a discount because a friend worked for a ford dealer and ordered it for me. I think it was $1900 without the dealer discount.

If you have a 4.0 in it now you can probably have it rebuilt for $1500 or less.
