    Default JK engine swap

    Ok thinking about doing an engine swap. I am wondering if the 07 cherokee or commander 5.7 would be a viable swap for my jk. I hear everyone talking about the hemi but not sure if this is the same motor or not. At 15,000 I am not really looking for a hemi. I can get the 5.7 for under 5,000. Just wondering if this has been tried or if there is a kit already out there.

    No, I am not really looking for a hemi. I was more trying to find out if the 5.7 in the 07 commanders or cherokee would be a more straight up swap. I can get a brand new one for under 5,000. Also I didn't know if these engines are hemis or not. Just trying to figure out my options I have the bad rings issue and no warranty. I had thought about the RIPP supercharger for more hp but I would still have to rebuild the engine to address the rings issue.
