Help With engine swap

Hey, new to the forum and I don't have much time to search through all of the threads or sit on a computer all day so what time I do have id prefer to spend on working on the truck. I just got a 1995 jeep Cherokee inline 6 for free no complaints actually love it shes got 200000 on her when I got her home but she runs amazing. I was told there was a blown head gasket by the previous owner but I am not totally convinced will replace any ways. My question is because the body is **** what could I put the motor into?

thanks !

An anchor for a small ship.
A corner marker to stop lawn jobs.
A messy coffee table.
Of all the things Ive lost
The one I miss most is my mind

Its like a fart in a windstorm
It smells good but thats about it

Another Jeep. The 4.0 also fits easily into many old AMC's that had the AMC I6 as a possibility (the 4.0 really just is an advanced AMC I6). Beyond that, I'm not sure what else. I've been entertaining the thought of putting my 96's 4.0 into a Gremlin that needs an engine for the girlfriend (LOVES Gremlins), but finding a solid Gremlin is pretty hard.

My 96 XJ is for sale in the event you want something to restore or build into a wheeling rig. Sale ad is HERE.
