Engine Conversion from 2.5 L to 4.0 L
I have a stock 97 2.5 L Wrangler, with a few engine mods. (Air Max Intake, TB spacer.) I want more power!! I would like to install a 4" Skyjacker lift, and 33 x 12.50 Procomp Xterrain tires. I was told I could change gear ratios, from stock to 4.56, or get an engine swap.
Which is the better way to go for the time being?
How difficult would a 2.5 to a 4.0 L swap be, and how much $$ might I be looking at?
I would really appreciate any input on this matter.
