4.0L Swap into '86 CJ7

I need as much info on the swap as possible. The CJ currently has the 4cyl in it. I need to know where the best place is to pick up a 4.0L, I am located in Florida. Has anyone done the swap? About how much will the swap cost? The more info the better!

I'm planning on a similar swap myself, but my Jeep has the 4.2 in it now. I figured it should come in around $1500 for everything I need to do it. So using the Jeep formula of "estimate X 2" I should be able to do it around 3 grand. I haven't started yet so I can't tell you about the difficulty,but it will no doubt require extensive patience and understanding of wiring.

My friend Scotty has done a couple 4.0 CJ conversions - in fact, he just finished one up last month. Check out his 4.0 conversion on his website and drop him a line - He likes to help!
