02 4 cyl TJ crate motor

I am new to the forum. I have a 4 cyl 2002 manual TJ. I heard that the 4 cyl is easier to swap out for a crate motor. Any thoughts? I am lifting 4 inch suspension and want to go bigger, hence spending less money for the 2.5 and just crating.

Sentence 1 response: No kidding? I would never have guessed.
Sentence 2 response: OK, thats a common engine for a TJ wrangler.
Sentence 3 response: Easier swap to what specific crate motor? A new 2.5 will come in a crate. What are we comparing the ease of swap to?
Sentence 4 response: I have plenty of thoughts.
Sentence? 5 response: Huh?

Really? This is how people act and respond in these forums. If you are at least willing to help. I heard that there are bigger engines that can mount to stock motor mounts on a 2.5. Is that true?

Welcome to the forum! I'm guessing you'll need different motor mounts. There's a lot of info on this, do some reading. If you really want to swap in a larger motor, a call to Novak Enterprises might help. Very knowledgeable people about this.

You asked if a larger engine could bolt to the stock 2.5 motor mounts. The answer is no.

Step 6 of the teraflex conversion is to cut out the stock motor mounts.
