Thought I'd post up the pictures I took of this swap (and there's a lot of them). Besides some 'procedural' shots, there's some showing measurements for the motor mounts and other issues.

Details:

Old: 1997 2.5L, AX-5, 231/4:1
New: 2005 4.0L, 42RLE, 231/4:1

Pictures here: http://www.jeepshots.com/shots/projects/4 Liter Swap/

Other details:

Lee Manufacturing hydro assist (pump, box, ram) left over from old engine
'Custom' radiator overflow bottle :flipoff2:
York OBA with Kilby bracket
Teraflex 231 shifter kit
12 Volt Guy winch panel
Frame side motor mount brackets cut from donor
M.O.R.E. engine block brackets (worth every penny)
M.O.R.E. motor mounts left over from old engine
Separated smog stuff and mounted in both rear fenders
Also swapped in (from same donor) the gas tank, dash, all electrical, HVAC

Still some stuff to finalize, but that's what I got. I know it's come up occasionally, so maybe this thread will help when searching.

What did you do with the evap canister? I noticed you said that you mounted the smog stuff in both rear fenders, got pics of that?

I do have pics, but they're crappy. When I repaint I'll take some better ones. Basically, I mounted the evap canister high in the passenger side, and then ran a hose through the back of the body below the tank to the driver side where I mounted the pump and filter.
