4.0/4.2/4.6 short block

My disco with 85k (gems 4.0) had a piston disintergrate. It is seemingly is more expedient and financially prudent to simply find a similar milage block so thats the plan. Looking for something in the midatlantic-Virginia would be ideal....
I have the cyl heads being rebuilt now.

If there wasn't damage to the cyliner wall, individual pistons are cheap and easy to access from below -- did one on a 90 several years ago and it's still 100%

I have a new-old-stock 4.0 short block with crank and pistons still in the crate. Will need a cam and lifters to be complete.

the shop has a bare block and main caps with slipped #6 liner from a 2k d2, the plan was to sent it to d&d to be relined and keep for spare. pm me if interested and I will speak or forward your info to my manager.
you can install your innards from the 4.6.
