Crate Engines

Anyone have any vendors they would recommend for buying a rebuilt 4.0? Jasper doesnt offer it. Found a place online called Precision Engines out of Houston. $2300 for long block. Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

I'll share the story about why a new engine is on my shopping list a little later.

That doesn't seem too bad for a long block. You could probably have a shop rebuild yours for maybe a grand less than that if your block is good as I am assuming you're doing the labor on the uninstall/install.

I see used engines show up on CL around here from time to time. I would go that route.

The place I ended up going with is called lowmileageengines.com.

I bought a 1GRFE from a totaled 2009 PreRunner with 1200 miles on the odo. They provide a carfax of the vehicle and warranty the motor for 1 yr, unlimited miles. I paid $3K. Price includes 2-4 day shipping to my house. No tax. Smoking deal compared to the junk I was finding around south texas. I'll be taking pictures of my swap. Pulling the current engine starts this weekend.

If anyone is interested, I'll be selling my current engine. I figure the long block is easily worth $1K since a rebuilt 1GRFE sells for $2500 and up. I'll be removing it from the truck this weekend.
