'95 ZJ - Rebiuld stock 318 or buy a used one?

So, I'm looking at picking up a '95 Orvis Edition ZJ. The guy only wants $500, and is even negotiable on that. The only issue that he's told me about is that it needs piston rings, because it's smoking. He says everything works, and I've seen pics and it looks to be in good condition in an out, though it's a few hours from me so I can't just go take it for a drive, or a closer look. My question, is it worth rebuilding the 318 in it, or find a better 318 or 360 to drop in it? I'd be doing the work either way, but if it's better to find a newer motor (this one has 180k KM's), would a 360 from the same year dodge truck work? Or a 360 from a 98 ZJ? The jeep won't be wheeled, but it'll be a DD/weekend toy for snow fun, so I don't need it to do a whole lot.
