1983 CJ5 V8 Conversion

I currently have the original 4 cylinder engine in my CJ5 and am considering upgrading it to a V8.

Any advice will be helpful:

Engine Choice (Chevy 350?)


Drive train

Other Upgrades Required?

one piece axles in the rear end. What are you planing on doing with the jeep? Mudding, rock crawling or street driving? I put an amc 360 in mine and built a ford-IH t18 to mate to the dana 20 t case. But I wanted granny gear.
