engine swap 2.5l to 4.0L in 1995 YJ
I have looked all over, done so much research and found out so many different things but i have a few questions. I am looking to do this swap because of money. I would love to go to a v8 but it is to costly. I have heard that you can use a ax5 transmission with the 4.0 the only reason i would do this is because my trany was just rebuilt with stronger more heavy duty parts. Is the true will they match up? I am aware the you need to move the motor mounts but thats no big deal and i think i need a new computer. but i have heard that I dont need a full new wiring harness and that i can splice two new wires for the two new cylinders! is this true? the engine that i would be putting in is from another 95 wrangler
please help me

I've done the same research and everything I found said there's no way to use the AX5 that you have to swap to the AX15.
