Tj Lake Villa

Hello everyone, my name is Travis. I currently live in Lake Villa. I'm in the Navy, stationed at RTC Great Lakes. I own a '99 TJ that currently has a blown 2.5L... Well, I'm currently rebuilding a 351W that will wind up with 400+HP & 400+ Torque. I really want to put this in the Jeep, but it has to be until after I get all the parts... ie, radiator, motor mounts, axles and transfer case. In the meantime, I would like to try to find another 2.5L to put in there so I can drive it around. I just can't seem to find an engine anywhere. As for the 351 swap, I'm sure I'll have tons of questions and hopefully you all may be able to help. Talk to you all soon.
