2001 JGC Limited swap-part out question and parts

Hello all. I am looking at buying an 01 Limited as a parts donor for my 04 Laredo. 4.7, Non HO. The engine has a "knock" according to the seller, but they aren't sure what it is and they don't want to spend the money on it.

I can use the airbox, misc trim, tow hitch, tow hooks, going to swap throttle body, rims, tires, some sensors, bumper cover, going to remove injectors, have them serviced and then put into my vehicle...etc

2 things, anyone done this (the swap in general), advice or anything you have run into, I know it has quadra drive, which I do not and 2, anyone looking for parts?

Make sure the sensors and injectors are the same.

Could be as simple as a autoparts site and looking up injectors for a 04 and a 01 and seeing if partnumbers are the same.

A knock could be a timing chain. If you are careful it's not a hard job, then you have a new vehicle cheap. If you can pick it up cheap enough do so, diagnose it and then repair/part out. If you are willing to do the work you'll make money. I'm on my 3rd part out and haven't lost yet.

FYI bumper cover is not the same. 04 is unique.

I thought timing chain, haven't looked into how to check it. A family member of his who is a "mechanic" thinks it's a piston. I haven't heard the noise yet. Of they're available today I'm going I start it up and drive it. If it's just a chain I'll flip it. In fair condition it's over 3k around here. It's unfortunate about the bumper but I did realize that. I need one ) : another thing that is different apparently is the purge duty cycle solenoid. That's a negative for me as well. I have to check the throttle body to see if they're interchangeable. It's got hooks, tow package, and 17s with new rubber that I want. A friend of mine wants the interior...I know about 6 people with these jeeps, so parting it out shouldn't be difficult. Lol

Sorry. Missed the sensor and inj post. Yes. I have to check those and the tb. Those and the rims hooks and tow is my main reason for getting it. I'll play and swap out some of the black interior into my taupe vehicle. Thought about cluster but apparently the cluster needs to be programmed for the mileage. Better off just selling it. Lol
