I have had my WJ GC 4.0 for 5 years now, It always had some AM static. Blew the 4.0, "piston skirt" and bought a o6 Wrangler 4.0 and transplanted it. Now my static is crazy. I cant hear crap unless the GC is turned off.

How in the world do i figure out whats wrong with my AM radio ?

Make sure you have the engine to chassis ground cable (or two) attached

Yeah that sounds like a grounding issue. Check your engine grounds. I also believe there should be a ground somewhere along your radio antenna, that may be your main cause for static before the engine swap.
