Will any 2.5 out of a yj or tj bolt up to an 88 mj. Seems to be alot more yjs with 2.5s around my area. I know i will have to use my bellhousing and electronics and such. Also my intake and exhaust since mine is a tbi.

Anyone know if a 2.5 yj will bolt up or if the motor mounts are different. My research says any 91 to 95 yj should bolt up. I would just like some confirmation before i spring on buying this motor. This is for my dd so im slightly in a hurry to get mobile again.. oh btw i have a stock mj aw4 4x4 231 with factory 4.56s.

Yes it will. I cannot remember if you have to swap the engine mounts from the MJ to the donor motor but I do know it bolts in (even if you have to do that). Either way that part of it is simple.

We put a '94 YJ 2.5 motor into an '87 2.5 MJ.
