There may be one out there but I've never heard fo one. You should check out a recent article in JP magazine that talks about 4cyl replacement options it had a few vendors and options listed. (around August '05 I think)

To be honest, you would be better off selling your tj and buying one with a 4.0. It would be alot cheaper since you would have so many extras to buy.

4wd

The newest 4wd catalog has this as the cover story. Seems a little pricey, but they offer a couple of different choices

go to a junk yard and buy a totaled 4.0 and take everything you need, then sell your motor and whats left of the other jeep, you may come out on top even, but theres no easy swap, i blew my motor in jan i looked,
