Hello! I'm one of the many 2.5L 4 cylinder Jeep TJ owners who want's more power. I've thought about doing many complicated swaps. I've even thought about putting a 6 cylinder jeep TJ engine in my 2.5L. With the new Cummins R2.8L 4 Cylinder Diesel engines, I really wanted to do the swap. What things would I have to have done? I'd be having a mechanic do the swap of course, but I'm looking into pricing and if it's worth my while. Everybody says to just trade it for the 6 cylinder jeep, or trade and do the swap on the 6 cylinder jeep. I have a lot of money on my 2.5L Jeep in suspension and more, and I don't really want to just get rid of it for half it's price. I've seen people do the swaps before, I just wonder if swapping this new crate engine is possible? Even if I have to buy a new transmission, radiator, computer, etc.
Hello all, I am looking into buying a Jeep. I've never owned one, but I have some friends and family who have one and I'd like to get one as well. My car is in need of being replaced, so I was looking for something that can be used as a daily driver and also some camping and light off-roading in the summer. I found a local 2000 TJ Wrangler with 134,000 miles on it. It is listed at $10,900, but the owner said it is negotiable. It's also a 4.0 6 cylinder. Here is the description: 5 speed manual transmission. Bought in 2014, reconditioned with the following & lots more Kenwood stereo CD player with detachable face plate & aux input VDP 6 speaker 200 watt peak power sound bar Rough Country 4"suspension system with shocks, stabilizer & front/rear adjustable track bar Heavy duty front control arm brackets Yukon high performance 411 gears, front & rear Detroit TruTrac limited slip in rear New ball joints, upper/lower New fan clutch New radiator K & N air filter New steering box & power steering pump New Smitty Built seats, front high back bucket. rear fold & tumble - black Advanced adapters slip yoke eliminator & custom rear driveline Bushwacker flat fender flares Spyder custom rear bumper with tire carrier, custom front winch bumper, 12,500# winch Custom rock sliders Goodyear Duratrack 33" tires, about 5,000 miles New locking center console with cup holders This jeep looks very clean. The body is straight, paint looks good, interior looks clean. However, I haven't had the time to test drive it yet.. My question is, is this priced high? especially for the mileage? I am under the assumption that a taken care of jeep can last 300,000 without major repairs if it's taken care of. Is that wrong? I guess all in all I am just wondering if this would be a good purchase or not, and potential problems to check for when I take it for a test drive. Any help is appreciated, Thanks!
