Just ask all the other jeeper's who have done an engine swap...which no doubt cost more than actually buying a 4.0L rig.
And slimpee....your quote of "for a few thousand more" is also amusing. Do you have a "few thousand more" laying around to put into your rig? Doubtful, or your wouldnt have that 4 banger in it. As jeepers, we all know what it is to have big ideas and no money.
Xeon, what about you? Your a student for god sake's. You of all ppl should know that buying a totally different rig is harder than just messin with the one you already have and love.
Goose, coils are an option. As many ppl that flame the coils..its funny how every jeep that goes on ebay that has them...goes for much more than another jeep with the same height lift but no coils. Gl with the project.
thats prolly the most intelligent thing said on this forum
