Rebuild 4.2 or install chevy 350

Just wanted everyones opinion. I just pulled my 4.2 6 cyl out of my 1988 YJ. It is another year motor because it is a feul injected motor. I need to put a new crank and bearings in it. While I have it out rear main seal, timing chain and headgasket, and hone the cylinders.
Just wanted everyones opinion should I do all this or install a chevy 350. Just wanted pros and cons and everyones opinion. Thanks in advance

You're going to get opinions on both sides of this, in the end it's totally up to you. There are a few threads where this topic has been debated.

I'm mainly a street driver.
Any advice is appreciated, thanks.:thumbsup:
