Why? Higher stall is going to ruin any drivablity for off road use or in the snow, stick with the stock. The only time you want a higher stall is if the motor requires it. So unless your adding some kind of lumpy cam, stick with stock.
The more you try to get out of the engine, the more things you'll need to make it work right. Think about headers, once you start shifting the torque curve upwards, you need better exhaust flow, your jeep is not exactly made for it unless you start hanging things out of the bottom.
You'll add more complications in the build and may not see the results. Build your engine to fit your vehicle, not the other way around. A stock 350 will have more than enough power to sit you in the seat tight. In fact, if it was me, I'd be looking to shift the torque to be higher in the lower RPMs. You'll still have plenty of motor for the street.
