    Have a 2007 4.0L V-6 Explorer that overheated and was driven on afterward a bit. Maintenance shop is replacing the water pump and thermostat housing, but I'm betting that the engine will go soon if it hasn't already. What are the best brands to buy a replacement engine? I've read that Jasper is not as good as its marketing suggests. The Jegs website sells a brand called ATK, which are pricier than what you'll see on Autozone and I assume they're a much better brand (just because Jegs is better than Autozone), but I don't know. Just looking for the best value for the money. I'm assuming that I have to get another 4.0L V-6 from 2007. (What other years are compatible?)

    Any 4.0l sohc will fit from 97 to 2010 from a mustang, explorer, ranger, sport trac, or land rover. You just need to strip it to a long block and swap any components over from the original. The best built will be the one that uses the best quality parts.
