    Where can I find a good price on an engine kit for a heep motor? It is a 4.2L or 258ci engine. The jeep I got for free, just blew up the engine. It was running fine with no noise, no oil leaks, nothing, then after about 45 min of freeway driving at 65 mph boom /forums/images/graemlins/angryfire.gif So much for free now.

    Trying to keep costs down, I was thinking about a sbc swap, but them I need new headers, new mounts, have to move trans, and remake drive shafts. I found a rebuilt 258 for 1,300 bucks with a 5yr/50,000 mile warranty
