The story on the engine:
My original mill had some lifter clatter that I ignored for 15k miles.
I drove to see my dad in Traverse City twice a year from Toledo.
Thing ran like a champ but after replacing a leaky radiator I started
having cooling issues.
I decided to sell the Jeep to a buddy. He ended up scoring a nice ZJ instead.
When he did he called me up and asked if I wanted the 4.0 crate motor he
was saving for an XJ purchase. He works a at a dealership and he bought it
in 2010 when the dealer mistakenly ordered it for a blown up Grand Cherokee.
He let me look inside with the borescope and even helped with the install.
He's been a Jeep mechanic for 10 years. Ive swapped many Ford engines so
between us I feel great about this install. The engine timing and tune were
set with a Mopar Scan tool. I have put 6000 reliable miles on this thing with 0 problems.
Its been on the 620 mile round trip to Traverse Citry 3x since the swap.
On to the pics:
Day I got it:
Doors are POR 15'd now from the inside.
headrests- welded in ZJ brackets
tasteful dash mod (note guage install)
XJ had a lot of salt spray stains and chips on my flares.
I bedliner'd em.
Also did teh scratched up bumper.

A few phone pics of the inside. Its dirty now. My street is a muddy mess due to new gaslines being installed
door ding I mentioned. I'd just find another blue door. They made a billion blue Cherokees. I passed on a couple at Cherry Picked this summer that I should have grabbed. Its not too bad and that rust spot is the worst spot on the whole vehicle. Floors are solid
the pass door
Nothing to hide, its a 12 year old Jeep with a new engine and a ton of maintenance already done.
