have any sugestions then? from what i have been reading 350 seems like a very common swap. from what i have gathered, chevy 350, 7004r trans, ford 8.8 rear end, dyna 44 front (i thinks thats what it was). and i know all kinds of parts for a 350 are out there.
i haven't bought anything yet still looking up things, reading, asking questiong. my yj has the 2.5 w/ manual trans. and gearing is way off now....doesnt want to get out of own road. and forget about keepin up any speed up hill.
i just don't want to buy something now and have to replace it in near future. even though right now my YJ is a daily driver. i want to start a little off roading and work my way up from there.
it's nice having toys and all my bills now paid off...lol
