Well, it's finally here: Got to 359,000+ on the original 4.0 engine, but it's made some really bad noises and is parked for the present.

Any recommendations for
  • where to find the best remanufactured motor
  • qualified Jeep mechanic in the Seattle area to do the swap

Appreciated. Thanks.

I’m at 260,000 and if seems like it will go a while longer if nothing crazy happens and is maintained.
If mine dies, it’s either a new long block from one of the reputable online sellers or I may have my buddy swap in a Toyota 1UZ-FE V8. They sound fantastic and it’s still a 4.0 liter. Lol
If you tackle it all at once, it could be an expensive project. I hope you are able to find everything you need at good prices.
