Does anyone have any idea how much the labor charge would be on an engine swap? My '93 GC has 285k on the current engine (inline 6 4.0L) and is starting to burn oil. I found a few engines that are anywhere from 500-900.00 and have between 40-90,000 miles on them. What would be my best bet if I wanted to stay around 1000-1500.00? I need to get this done ASAP, so any info would be great. Thanks.
I had a 360 engine replaced in a full size Grand Wagoneer everything cost about $3800. That was about 5 years ago.

GroundClearance, how much did you pay for it at the junkyard?
Did you put it in yourself or have a shop do it? If a shop, how much was the labor?
I got it for $750 and I was charged about $400 or less for labor, but again that was back when I lived in VA and had a whole lot of hook ups, so I really dont know for sure if thats a relalisic estimite. Also like I said I took the engine from a XJ, so there was a little fabing to get everything to mount right, but that may have changed the price too.

Don't forget about asking your local community college's automotive technology department if you can donate your Jeep as a gineau pig. That's assuming you can drop it off for a week and aren't concerned about any warranty.
