Default 4.0 compatibility/ rebuild

Looking to get a new motor for my TJ or to get it rebuilt

I have an 02 so what year jeep can I get an engine out of? Which have the less problems and will work with my current setup?

If I choose to get it rebuilt can anyone on here do it for me or tear it down and lmk the damage? If not where should I take it

Thanks

Why don't you just stroke it or put a 5.3 in?

Are you sure a 4.0 has enough power?

how many miles on your 4.0L?
what is wrong with it?
low compression?
oil consumption?

rebuilding yours should be fairly cheap, depending on how far you go with it.

assuming nothing looks real chewed up inside when it comes apart, buy a set of rings, crank and rod bearings, oil pump, timing chain and gears, water pump, and a gasket set. clean everything, put it back together. all the parts are pretty cheap.

it should be a simple job really.

Simple for someone who knows what they are doing.

I wouldn't bother with such a lame swap. I mean the 4.0 isn't even a v8.

Didn't you start a job last month making double the money that you were before? That $600 a month should be pocket change!

Go v8 and buy this

It would be a cheap swap.
