95 YJ 350 swap

Hey guys, got a question. I am doing 350 swap in my 95 YJ and going to be running a 350 small block with a carb and a 700r4 tranny. Was wondering if anyone had advice on a camshaft that work well for this build. I will be using the jeep as a weekend toy for trail riding with the occasional drive back and worth to work. Want good low end torque, good mid range power and a smooth idle is preferred. Might use jeep to pull small pop up camper. Thanks

Most of the aftermarket cams are not going to provide what you are looking for because they are made for more high end power than low end torque. It may sound lame but why not use the stock 350 cam? If not stock a cam aimed at low end torque cause you won't care about what happens above 4500 rpm anyway.

your stock cam should be fine..if you really want to change it,then what is normally refered to as a RV cam would be what you are looking for.It is basically a truck cam,with short duration ,for a little more low rpm torque

Call any of the cam companies and ask for a recommendation.

Thanks for the advise. Have heard several say the RV cam is the way to go.
