Anyone running a v8 motor swap in here?

Just wondering if anyone here has done it, how it rides, what they thought about it.

I've seen a few Jeeps here in Orlando with v8's and I've always wanted to do the swap to a jeep. I almost got a cj with one a few years ago, but I'm 6'3 and 290lbs so the ride was a bit cramped.

On nc4x4.com fullwidthyj94 has a 318 in his wife's Tj. His name is Dwayne. He's usually open to questons and does all his own work.
