gettin a new engine isnt rebuilding entire jeep
and i always say start with what size tire you want to run and build around it.

and the 4 banger isnt strong enough to do much damage to the axles, but brakes and steering would fail almost immediately

Obviously. But the OP doesn't even seem like he knows what it takes to run 37s so I wouldn't even consider recommending an engine swap.

A 4 cylinder with 37s..... No! No! No!

Not if yer drivin' it on the street.

Only if it is going to be a rock crawler with new axles, gears.. like 6.37s, brakes....... and forget the body lift... just cut away the body parts in the way.
