swap something into a 98 TJ SE?
Okay, I figured this kinda goes here instead of the TJ Tech forum. So, I'm looking at something to replace my 2.5L I4 with. Any ideas on something that's easy to find and has good aftermarket support and is good for offroading? I'm kinda thinking the 5.2L or 5.9L out of a GC might do pretty good, as the 4.0Ls are too hard to find around here. Is there a better engine or idea that you can think of? I kinda want something that has good low end torque and HP making it good for offroad. I searched a while for a Cummins, but that's too heavy I think, requires too much drilling and frame reinforcement, and is way too expensive. Ideas please. I would like the 5.7L Hemi conversion done, but that's just a rediculous ammount of power and money.
