I dont see why not, but chances are your going to need the wiring harness and possibly the ECU.

it looks like the long block is the same for all model years. you might just have to swap your intake, accessories, and exhaust manifolds. That's what i understand from reading on several forums.

I want the 4.0 gone. PM me with an offer zach if you really are interested. It ran great when i pulled it about a month ago and it's been stored in my shop since then. I have every little thing you will need for it. Besides the dip stick and dip stick tube that i sold to fellow member. But i can go get you one from the junkyard and slap it on there before i ship it.

Idk, we've been talking a little. Definately doesn't mean it's sold though. I consider it sold when someone makes an offer and we agree and they send me some money to ship it. :)
