Re: 4cly to 6cly swap

It is hard. I have tried it twice now. I don't have the tools or knowhow to do it myself, so I have tried to get a pro to do it. I have had the motor twice in there with the Jeep and they said we can't do it. Different guys the second time. If you do try, make sure to get the transmition with the moter because the 6cyl won't bolt to the Ax5 trans. This could put you into a positoin where you need to move the transfer case and then you are looking at new drive shafts.
But it is not impossable. I Will swap out my 2.5L some day. You may look into a chevy 4.3L There are tons of kits to do it and they put out the same #'s as the 6cyl. Good luck
