Default 241 with sye is it strong?

since i have a 241 already that will bolt up to my 700 i plan to run in my jeep i am wondering if i should just get the sye kit and run that
the kit is 360 bucks and i can still use my purty auto meter speedo i bought

would it hold up to dana 60s and 350 hp?
going in a jeep yj

i figure it would be much cheaper to run than to get a dana 300 and then flip it or get an adapter to run it anyway

the cv u joint setup
i have a friend that works at a drive line place and he is going to make my drive shafts for me

i know the sye is stronger than the slipyoke i am concerned with the t case itself holding up and also if it has a decent gearing for low range

Its 2.72:1, just like a stock Dana 300. It should be fine. 241's were used in a lot of crap, including V-10 Rams.
