If you plan on running 60's I would focus on beefing up your unibody accordingly.

Depending on your concerns and what youll be doing with it, a 231 may be nice. Simpler, more aftermarket support. Im happy with my 242 swap but I think shes getting tired. Shes a might noisy and clunky at the moment.

I dunno if its just bull**** or not but a friend told me you could take a 231 Tcase from older dodge trucks. Said it was beef. Dunno if it would bolt up or be more work than what its worth but I always wanted to look into it a bit more. Itd be a good JY swap if it worked out.
