Jeep's powertrain engine repalcement?
 
if us gen 1 4.7 guys ever had some major engine failure that required it to be replaced does jeep carry a stock of old gen 1's or would they just throw a gen 2 in it? No i am not going to wreck my engine for one but im curious. :D

once manufcaturers build a vehicle....by law they have to keep parts available for 10 years. You can still get brand new gen 1 4.7's and will for 10 years past 2007

You prolly could convince them to put a gen 2 in. But im thinking thats more than just a engine swap. Since gen2 is throttle by wire and is flexfuel, so it has different computer me thinks
