Chrysler 3.3 litre motor in 97 tj

I have a good motor out of a 1990 chrysler dynasty wondering if i could swap it out in the 97 tj. Tj has a 2.5l 5-speed in it.

probably easier to just find a low mileage jeep 4.0 complete drivetrain in good condition and just swap it all over.

WTF is a Chrysler Dynasty? Like Novaks website says, common swaps are common for a reason. Unless you like blowing money and not being much farther ahead, stick to the (several) tried and true powertrain swaps.

You mean dodge dynasty or Chrysler 5th ave, the 3.3 is a Mitsubishi motor and not that great in any way what so ever
