    A friend of mine has an '84 Jeep CJ-7 with the 4.2L I-6 engine. This thing really needs to be rebuilt, and I've offered to help with the rebuild.

    Are there any good places in the Boulder/Denver area where I can get remanufactured engine blocks, heads, and other misc parts for Jeeps?

    Just moved to the area this past May, and haven't had time to scope out all the local 4x4 and engine shops. I'd appreciate any info you fine folks might have for me!

    Well one thing that Jeep did do right was make the bell housings all the same. You can mate any AMC to that tranny,as long as you have the proper side motor mounts. But as far as replacement parts for the stock 6, gonna have to wait for a Colorado person to answer you, I'm in Oregon and can give you 3 shops and 9 years with in 14 miles of my house.

    Theres a place in texas that sells rebuilt heads, It was cheaper for me to order them from there with shipping then have them rebuilt in colorado plus no core charge but you do have to send the old ones back. They wher for my 6.2 though.

    That's what we ultimately will do to this engine. Use the 4.0L head when we go to fuel injection.
