93 zj? With a 5.9l 4x4 cant find any info

So guys i need all the information you can throw down on here. I bought a 93 zj 5.9l and it has 210k for $800. I cant find anything about it or what it has all i know as printed under the hood and in the owners has a 5.9l 4x4. Its that rare or a half breed, or a dealer Frankenstein? isnt showing me anything and rather gather information for people that have experience in jeeps not wiki

A transplant, the only year with a 5.9 was 98. A 93 would have come with a 4.0 or 5.2 litre. Possible someone swapped one in though.

I want pics.

And the VIN, that'll probably show that it was originally a 5.2.

Odd part its all factory and its on the hood read out evap system and everything. Is a 5.9 a direct bolt up to the 5.2 trans? No fab or crazy amout of things to be moved?

The 5.2 and 5.9 are the same on the outside, so I believe it would just bolt right up to the trans. Pics would definitely be good.

Pics of Vin, Drivers door sticker, Emissions sticker. The 98 Owners manual is the only manual that lists the 5.9 This link will show you how to decode your Vin.

I believe your emissions sticker and probably some other things are from a 98 5.9. That does not mean your engine is.

(from another forum)
All Magnum engines are stamped either 360 or 318 on the driver’s side near the rear of the block. The casting number found on all 360 Magnum blocks is 5302006, whereas the 5.2/318 Magnums are 53006714 or 53006657. Otherwise, the 5.2 and 5.9 appear pretty much identical.
