Default Jeep 3.8 V6

So what do you all think about it. Just looking at the stats it's 205 HP with 240 torque. I think they started coming in the JKs in 2007 or something. Well I have the option to get one with low miles complete with transmission. The owner went to a hemi so it's not coming out of a wreck or anything like that and looks clean. The main thing I'd be concerned about is getting a harness for it if needed and where are the oxygen sensors located cause it only has manifolds on it. OK throwing that out there, I wasn't sure about the feel and horsepower with it.

The thing is I could have a 2 year old engine for less than the price to put TBI on the V8... Hmmm maybe I'll just have to make a tube buggy to put it in....

about 950 complete with tranny that was never removed and radiator, harness, alt.... It came out of an 08 Rubicon w/about 30,000 miles because of a hemi swap... just don't know what transfer to slap on it. OH and that's shipped to the door. It doesn't seem like a bad deal.
