4.0 to 5.2 Swap on JGCL, Help??

What all has to be swapped out to take out a 4.0 liter and put in a 5.2 Liter V8. Electronics, cooling, engine mounts.

Has anyone done this before???

If you do a search for past topics related to 4.0 to 5.2 or 5.9 engine swaps you will find many, and most of them will say it's too costly (unless you have the $$$ and the time) and reccommend either rebuilding your 4.0 as a stroker (do a search) or trade in/sell your I-6 for a 5.2.

Hope this helps,

P.S. Welcome to the forum! Tell us some more about your ZJ. Maybe post it in your sig!

Thought for the day:
If GOD gave HIS only son for us...can't we at least give HIM an hour of our time a day.
