Rebuild kit?

I have advertised my engine from my '93 ZJ for freebie/sale and have had a few hits, but no takers so far.

I figure if it doesn't sell, I will attempt to rebuild it myself with help from a local machine shop and haynes/chiltons manual. Since it won't be for use, I figure why not teach myself some things.

I would like to, of course, buy a rebuild kit. I am TOTALLY new to this whole thing. I know the basics pretty much. I will need to bore the piston chamber to accomodate the next largest size piston, etc. I'll be reading up on it as well. I just would like to know of WHERE to buy such a kit at a reasonable price? Any help would be great!

Macon, GA. Approx. 2 hours south of Atlanta.

Edit: Ahh, see you're in Savannah. I'm about 2 hours from you, too.

I agree. They will set you up with the correct size bearings, pistons, rings, etc. They do the machine work, you assemble.

1986 CJ7, 4.2 w/4.0 head, TFI-HEI hybrid ignition, Clifford manifold w/Holley 390 w/cold air intake, OBA, 4.5" lift, Woody CV shaft and Tattons in front, 4.10 gears - lunchbox in front, Truetrac in the back, twin-sticked, blower upgrade for running topless, trying to keep it simple.

It's just a Jeep, and if you don't wheel it once in a while, it's not even that.
