if you go to the website and put in all the vehicle info it gives you the right one. Ours will be a one-bolt.

That is a good price Bananaslug since it's $59.99 + $9.99 shipping on Amazon. The Mopar CKP OE # is 56027280 for the 96 4.0. Best to remove the 1 bolt on the top left bell housing with a 11mm or 7/16" swivel socket (both fit) from underneath with a long extension. Then remove/install the CKP from the top. Make sure you unplug the battery first. Good luck.

Have ordered lots of parts from here. Great prices, but shipping/handling is a little high when ordering only one small part. I usually order a few parts at once. Contact Bobby for info/quote.

This place is in florida isn't it? Or there may be another place with the same name without the hyphen. I live in florida so to use them they would nail me on sales tax.

Good time to clean the 3 engine grounds before installing your new CKP if you haven't already done so. There's 1 on the oil dip stick tube bracket and 2 on the coil bracket studs. One of these on the coil studs grounds the PCM which is turn grounds all the sensors. I learned the hard way and a rusted/corroded/oil-covered PCM ground took out my PCM along w/the CKP. Just thought I'd pass this along and good luck.

It would have gone out eventually anyways. Dont feel too bad, and keep the old one as a spare.

Sucks it didn't fix it. I just went through this and spent about 4hrs with a manual and multimeter running tests. Found out it was the cps.

Still end up spending an extra $30 on a pick up coil I didn't need.
