AMC 360 Question

I know the sale of AMC brought about alot of changes but I am wondering if the 360 block is still the same. Wondering about using the short block in a 98 ZJ 5.9.

Possible ?? Thanks.

I bought "MY JEEP" for my wife
I bought "MY OTHER JEEP" for my daughter [she sold it]
I finally bought one for me

Nope. The AMC 5.9 went the way of the dinosaurs with the demise of the Grand Wagoneer in 91.

The ZJ 5.9 is a completely different engine. The only thing those 2 motors share are the engine size, otherwise one is an AMC motor and the other is a Chrysler motor.
88 YJ...kinda. Clayton Hard Arms, V8, 1 tons running gear, twin sticked, Irok's, fuel cell, multi-colored
