I saw a sticker on a dealer modified Wrangler years back that said it had an 8,000 pound wench. I asked about her exceeding the GVWR of the Jeep but the salesman didn't get it.

Meh, independent suspension will kill it in the rocks. I'll stick with a Jeep.

He probably got people telling him he doesn't know what engine is in his Jeep because it's certainly not an LT1. I used to be big into Chevys back in the day so I can spot them pretty easily,...

Except that the Chevy engine you put a picture of is a TPI engine that was offered from 85-91. The LT1 replaced the TPI motor in 91 and ran through 96. This is an LT1:
