Topic: Jeep 4.0
Has anyone used a 4.0 out of a Jeep in Lemons? I have been into rock crawling for some time and I have thrashed many of these engines with no abrupt failure. I have put a balancer on a few and converted a few to open cooling system but that’s it. I had one that spent the two years I owned it gurgling in my pond as I thrashed around in the deep end (They dont float well without doors and a roof). No snorkel, no OIL, no TLC, nothing!!! Just good ole mudslinging rev limit bumping goodness. I have been threatening to do this swap for a while but haven’t seen any discussion on one. You can find them EVERYWHERE in the Cherokees (XJ) for nothing. I can pick up a mid 70’s Datsun truck for $50 with a screwed trans and then dump one of these in for under $200 and have a legitimate Lemons that may skirt inspection due to the shut hood of ancient Z crappiness… Thoughts?
