I am leaving to college next year and want to replace the 4.0 in my cherokee it has 220k and still runs good but don't want any problems while I'm out there and wanted to do everything new before I leave. My dad says just buy a new engine and have it tossed in but I hear alot of bad mouth twards jeep crate engines because of quality, should I just get it rebuilt and at least i know who/where it's being done or just gamble with unknown crate motors? I also heard that rebuilt 4.0's over heat because of the thin cylinder walls so this really has me comfused....thanks

What year is it? Does the motor burn oil or sound bad? If not I would worry more about losing the transmission than the motor. Just my 2 cents. Good luck.

It's a 93 and burns a noticable amount but I'm not complaining it still burns tire but the only thing that makes me wonder is the knocking/clicking noise it makes for the first 10 minuets while it warm's up then nothing. I just simply don't want to worry about the car while I am out there ..thanks
