    Correct ^ and any 3.8 2007 and up should fit but some of your brackets will probably have to be transferred over.

    Better engine is the key phrase there... why would they put such a toilet engine a jeep...when historically they have been bulletproof?!

    I suspect they were in a pinch to meet emissions and fuel economy standards and happened to have a bunch around after the caravan went to the 4.0 for the larger motor.

    They don't generally keep a list of their inventory but from what I saw on my last visit, there are quite a few 3.8's there
