What\'s a reasonable offer for a newer 4.0 complete

I was just wondering what a reasonable asking price is for a low mileage-under 50K-4.0 out of a wrangler or a cherokee. Are the post 1991 motors all the same, or was one of them set up to put out more ponies? Also, I would love to know what the torque numbers are for the 4.0 and how high they might go with few mods.

Re: What\'s a reasonable offer for a newer 4.0 complete

I found a '92 4.0 with computer from an automatic Cherokee (wrecked) with 83k miles on it for $750 at the local junkyard. I've seen complete engines go for $1500 as well with less miles on them.... I know a few guys in Lakeland that got new TJs, dropped in truck drivetrain and do mudbogs with them. They've got 4.0s with only a few thousand on them for about $1k each...

Re: What\'s a reasonable offer for a newer 4.0 complete

Those seem like reasonable prices JeepN, but those are also all non-HO 4.0s. I've seen a few of those for sale around here but I just kept waiting for a 91+ model to use...

Sorry, I'll keep looking. What price range are you looking at?

Re: What\'s a reasonable offer for a newer 4.0 complete

I'm not really sure how much to spend. I am just interested in the HO version of the the 4.0. I figure I would have to spend at least $1000 bucks but I would like to know how much to bargin with a salvage yard if I found something nice and wanted to put in an offer. I know that the yard knows how much they can get for something like that.

Re: What\'s a reasonable offer for a newer 4.0 complete

Well...for the '92 4.0 with computer I'll be paying $750. That is down here in FL where vehichles dont rust away in a few years. Up north I'd say $500 for just the engine. You might be able to pick up a rusy, wrecked Cherokee for that much or a couple hundred more...?
