Looks like you had some fun!
I can't exactly tell by the picture in your avatar if it is, but I assume the 427BBC Jeep he's talking about is High Energy. If so, you know my dad, and have seen me in the campgrounds/dunes a few times.

We had a great time having a few minor issues with cooling I have some changes to make. The jeep was running great but the motor is a little tight couldent get it over 6000 rpms im going to losen up lifters a little and put larger fuel lines on. Should be turning 7500 rpms.

What size fuel line are you running? I would think an RPM limitation would be more valvetrain/timing related over any fuel line size (provided you didn't notice other problems)
We ran the stock fuel line and stock pump 3 motors ago on dads Jeep with his 406. To my surprise, we never had any lean issues.
I'd also be careful about loosening lifters too much.

I thought they looked quite big. That is A LOT of tire, especially with 17 scoops. I still run STU 20.00 paddles on mine. And dad runs a 32x14.50 casing with 14 staggered scoops on his Jeep, and we're going to try some STU 20.00 paddles on his just to see how they work (his makes a touch under 800HP on motor). So yea, that's a TON of tire. I'm also wondering if the tire size isn't working your converter too hard.
