Who knows? you are doing the butchery- trying to save money- and you are over your head with this whole "Jeep Liberty" thing- isn't that ironic? It's named Liberty but it actually just enslaves you and your bank account- really, get another car, another brand-

I can see that you give up very easy pussy


Thank you for the compliment!

great, car guru trolls.. don't you guys live on facebook? This was a pretty good question, albeit inarticulate to your tastes. Swapping a 2006 3.7L with another similar 3.7L even the wrong year isn't difficult. Its a reluctor issue and the VIN needs compatibility.. Make sure you have all the information before you start a project, like getting the manuals for both the existing vehicle and the one for the motor you're transplanting. Custom parts aren't always needed, but sometimes it happens. Its a matter of $, Time, and energy.. Cheap, Fast or Good.. Pick 2. can't have um all.

2004-2010 Ram 1500 _____ 2011-2012 Ram 1500 _____ 2004-2011 dodge Dakota ____ 2004-2009 Dodge Durango _____ 2007-2011 Dodge Nitro ____ 2004-2012 Jeep Liberty _____ 2005-2010 Grand Cherokee & Commander _____ 2006-2010 Mitisubishi Raider ____ These are the motors that I was told i could slap into my 2006 Jeep liberty.. however, i'm hightly skeptical of the difficulty involved, especially with a mitsubishi motor having some interchangeability with my own.. Again, how much effort do you have. Although, don't forget they have to be 3.7L to bolt up.
