Brute Help

Alright, so im getting ready to sell my soul and do the brute conversion on my TJ, i think they look great and what better truck to have than a Jeep truck. plus ive always had a thing for having something that not many people have. im working on gathering parts now, starting with new axles. not sure what axle im gonna use yet, it will depend highly on the local junkyards stock. im pretty Mechanically inclined but i believe this is gonna be a huge undertaking. are there any fellow jeepers out there, hopefully nearby to my home that would be willing to lend a hand if need be? ill provide beer! might even fire up the ol smoker. just trying to see if anyone might be able to help me in the future. it wont be tomorrow, but hopefully within the next month or so ill be tearing down and starting the conversion. also going to do a motor swap, hopefully at the same time if my wallet allows, basically i want to build a brute to compete with by buddies raptor.... if im going to spend that kind of money, id rather have somthing built my way. so whos in?

id like to do a pre 07 5.7 hemi... easier swap to do, plenty of power...and plenty of opportunity for upgrade. not to mention they're plenty of them sitting in junk yards. hopefully if all goes well ill have a build thread on here.
