Magnum motor in a jeep cherokee xj

I have a 98 Jeep cherokee xj/classic, and thought about swapping it out for a new crate Magnum motor in it. Put a really quiet muffler and silence it like "shhhhhhh" type and always wanted to go by a rice paddie and look at him and laugh and offers to race. I go and smoke him out. Maybe its pipe dreams...

No they make magnum engines, Its the name of the engine. I know They come in dakotas, the 3.9 liter magnum and a 318 magnum. I have a 3.9 magnum in my dakota. But I believe they make larger magnum crate engines now that you can get out of jegs or summit.

There are 5.2 and 5.9 magnum engines available in the Dakota and Durango.

That'd be bad ***. I think you'll have some fitting issues though because those blocks are HUGE.
