I have water in my oil and in my exhaust. Scraping noise before it happend so I think more than head gasket. Need to take a look but would imagine a new engine is needed. Maybe I have a rod through the block. Its a 95 Sahara 4.0. What are your ideas on where to get the best stock rebuilt engine? Quadratech looks kind of high. Need good cost and good engine. Live in upstate NY.

There are quite a few shops in my area that install Jasper engines.
X2 on Jasper, although I only bought a 2.5 from them about 15 yrs ago. The first one ran great for about 20,000 miles. Then I drove into a small pond and threw a rod. I learned. The second lasted great, but I sold it. But they were easy to work with.

I rebuilt my own 4.0. So far so good.

Hopefully the OP got it sorted back in 2011 :)
Damn, I hate it when I do that 🙃

I was doing some research and didn't look at the date. I've got a need too - my daughter's 99 TJ 4.0L is worn out. I bought a used 4.0L for her, but you never really know if a used engine is any good. It's going into her TJ in a month or two.

I've got a used 4.0L engine in my 95 YJ, and I've been pretty lucky with it so far. I don't mind investing in a good rebuilt engine, if I'm planning to keep the Jeep. But it seems like a lot of the rebuilt engines aren't done very well.

That's what I'm worried about when swapping a motor. My time is limited and I don't want to have to swap it twice. I've had my YJ for over 20 years and I don't see myself getting rid of it, so I want something decent.
