88 Cherokee 4.0 ?

Have a chance to buy an 88 model cherokee w/ the 4.0, auto. Is this good for the head swap or even the entire engine into a cj, or should I wait for a later model motor to come along?

Re: 88 Cherokee 4.0 ?

I'm pretty sure that the '88 is still the older non-HO versioin of the 4.0. If it is, it's useless for the head swap because it's pretty well the same head. The only bonus this engine has over the 4.2 is the fuel injection but even that is the older "renix" style that is has no real benifits other than hill climbing.

'88 Sahara, 4.2 that runs thanx to every Cheap trick on this board. The rest is getting there![img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/blush.gif[/img]
