That trans is going to die pretty quick.
I don't know how deep your pockets are but a
NV4500 - Advanced Adapters
Atlas 2 Tcase - Advanced Adapters
350 - [You said your building this yourself] If buying a turn key Engine Factory
Advanced Adapters has weld in and bolt up kits for YJs for 350s. I have the weld in kit with a 350sbc in my 88 Wrangler. Plus these guys know there shit. Call them and they can tell you everything you might need.
Basically the Jeep driveline is not built to withstand the power of a V8, especially a built one. [Looks like your talking about building your 350 into a stroker]I have sheered my yoke bolts off 3 times. [yes not broken U Joint, sheered off the bolts that hold the strap on] With that said my axles have been holding up well for nearly 7 years. [Knock On Wood] With a stick shift however you wont be as lucky as I have been.
Trans and transfer case will set you back 4000 to 5500$s if you go with a good remane. If your handy with a welder you could find some Dana 44s and weld on the needed parts for your application.
Just some thoughts to help you look at what your getting into.
