Funny idea i had... Tehehe ;)

So laying around the barn, I have an old 460 big block. Aaand, I happen to have an old 76 CJ-5. So, if you catch my train of thought yet, does anyone think it would be feasible to stuff that big ole heap in there. But also, does anyone think it might be worth it? Thanks for your input haha

I've heard worse but it does not sound like it would be worth the work. Now if you said you were going to lower it go 2wd and make a street rod they look pretty cool and you avoid alot of hassle. I assume you already have a 4x4 jeep to off road with.

Could it be done and Should it be done are two different questions. Yes, it could be done, but I can't imagine why you'd want that big of an engine in a short wheel base jeep with a high center of gravity?
