I'm looking to spend under $2000 on the engine. I need it here by Tuesday, I have to have my car up and running by Thursday. I want to get as low a mileage as possible. I did a search a messaged the first 10 or so asking how quickly they can get it to me. Beyond that how do I know who is reputable? I'm in a rush but I don't want to make a mistake.
Thank you again for your help. You're very much appreciated.
The long block (block, cylinder heads, timing cover) are the same but the oil pan, intake manifold and exhaust manifolds are different depending on whether you get a Jeep Liberty engine or another Chrysler product. Read through the thread I linked to for the specifics of what you need to use from your existing engine in order for it to work in your Jeep.
Unless you find a Liberty engine from an '03 or '04 and can do a quick swap it is unlikely you can meet your timeline. Having it running by Thursday isn't impossible but it will take a LOT of work and will require that pretty much everything goes perfectly. Projects like this always have a bump in the road somewhere.
