Got the big daddy !! There is no substitute for Cubic Inches !! Ran big blocks for years. All they need is a cam, carb, and headers. Unless you want to get unruley, then pistons and a good set of heads will make it growl !! If it was me, I would stay with an old style set of round port heads, more low and midrange torque. Squares are more for high end RPM's, big cams, and a lot of duration.

I see you got the old style twisted Torker intake. That's a good intake. Ran one on a 396, 11.5:1 620 solid lift 320 duration cam, ported round port heads, 750 DP, she would twist about 7200 with a 10 inch converter. Drove that motor on the street daily, even drove it four hours down the highway from Dayton Ohio to my home now in Ky., back when race fuel was only $1.79 gallon. lol .. telling my age now.

Only seen one other Jeep in my life that had a big block and wasnt at Gravelrama racing. It was at the Lima, Ohio 4-Wheel and Off-Road Jamboree. It set low, but when the hood was lifted, all you seen was motor.

Unfortunately, I don't have the story behind putting duct tape in that particular spot. This is how I got the Jeep.
My guess is that the axle shaft broke and instead of replacing it, the PO used duct tape to hold a plug in place. As soon as I find out, I will let everyone know. I am looking forward to digging into this Jeep just to see what else was duct taped, baling wired, or otherwise stuck together.

Bought this today on EBay for $200 with shipping. Was going to make my own, but I really preffer the molded look of one that is actually made for the Jeep.

I've seriously considered that kit as well. Keep us updated on it once you get it in and install it

large oval port heads
2.065" intake valves
1.720" exhaust valves

Yes, it is the donor. My intention wasn't to jump THAT high. I was expecting only a foot at the most. But somehow my brain told my foot to punch it 35 feet away from the jump, like I would with the 4 cylinder. But the V8's got twice the power than I was expecting

Thanks. The install was fairly easy as long as the winch is mounted to the bumper completely, then hung. I did it all by myself in just a few hours
