Advance Adapters and Novak both make adapter kits. I prefer Advance because they go into greater detail on what will and won't fit your Jeep. Check them out.

try advanced adapters if your hooked on the inline 6 or go with a chevy 4.3l v6 out of a late 80's to early 90's pickup they get decent fuel mileage and decent power.not as much torque as straight 6 but it's still a decent motor
