Re: How much for a 4.0 L to swap for a 4.2??
I would hazard to guess that you'd want as much of the original wiring and what-not as possible, but that quote is mighty steep. Someone is trying to take you on that one IMO.
Last year I talked to my local wrecker and they wanted $1200 CND for a 4.0L out of a late Cherokee, it only had 50,000 KMs on it. That's about $750 US for an engine with about 31,000 miles on it. Not bad!
I have a friend who just built a 4.5 stroker for a fellow in Alabama for around $3000 CND.
If your anywhere near the border, try taking advantage of exchange rate!
BTW, go for a '91 and up, or better yet a '95 and up 4.0L.
Oh ya, I think your exhaust manifold is different than the 4.0L, and you want to make sure the computer and the engine compatment wiring harness is included and complete at the very least.
