A couple questions. None are meant to be rude, inflamatory or critical. They just help everyone understand your needs and abilities.

Are you new to the offroad world?
Why do the swap?
Do you run sand, mud or race?
What's the need for the HP?
Ever done this type of thing before?
What driveline is in the jeep now?
Any pics?

no not really new ive only had 80s chevys

i want do do the swap because my uncle did the swap and i want to do it just like his he passed away and i want to rebuild it just like his

its going to be strictly for mudding and possibly some trips to silver lake

light and nimble was what my uncle was all about and thats what i want to do as well

ive never owned a jeep so this is going to be new for me

the driveline is a buick v6 and a jeep manual tranny, but it is not comming with the motor or tranny

i will post pics of it soon

This site will be your friend if you don't have fabrication skills, everything you need to bolt in a 350/350 combo. You probably have a Dana 18 (transfer case) which "should" hold up to the power. Your axles may be a different issue though. What size tires are you going to run?
