Engine swaps aren't terribly complicated. Just take some pictures and remember how it goes back together. The hardest part IMO is always lining up the input shaft into the flywheel if its a manual. But I generally do this alone. Find a friend and it makes things so much easier. A 2.5 in a tj is easy since removing the fan and shroud gains your like a foot and a half of room in from where the extra 2 cylinders are missing.

I have a 93 with 61,000 miles on it. I have a sale pending so I need to confirm with the other buyer before I can sell it.
