Yes there are cases where they were taken care of just as they were supposed to be but had issues prematurely due to parts going bad long before they should have. On general however, if you take care of it it will take care of you. I say stick the 3.0 in it as it is the easiest and fastest swap. Then keep on top pf maintenance.

My 93 4.0L is knocking on 338600 miles now; Original engine/Trans, its on its second clutch now (first one at 144k), I've only had to do brakes, Lower I/M gasket, and well I think Ive posted my 70 yards of near 3ft of water crossings enough now.. lol still going strong.
