    I found an 88 for $7,000 and it only had 22K on it. Two issues... The last 10 miles were pretty rough on it and the 88's are not a desirable year with the manual due to a weak trans.....

    The AX15 swap is easy so no worries there and there are injection options for the 4.2. Unless...... you go with a SBC

    The 258 6 cyl would be the easiest, but a 305, 327, 350, 383, 400 chevy small block would be most fun. But change one and more items down the drive-train will need some upgrades to handle the power increase.

    I wasn't really looking for a YJ when I bought mine, but was offered a deal from a co-worker that I couldn't pass up...seems it had an incident involving a deer that twisted the tub. Bought it for $1000, found another YJ for $1000 on e-bay, that had a rotted frame (that was easy to do in NJ) and swapped the tub onto the one with a clean frame...and bingo (well actually took me a couple years, since I rebuilt just about everything as I went), one nice Jeep from two nasty, bent, and rusty ones

    downside is that they were both 2.5L/ax5 YJ's...but I may change that
