I am gathering up what I need for a 454 BBC/T400 swap. I want to run 33" 35" at biggest.
I want oodles of torque so I am building the 454 for 540Ft lbs as a goal.
So far I have a few options for things.
Swap tail shafts, keep my (I think it's a 208 or 229) transfer case and 44's.
I also have access to a Dana 300, an NP205, a GM 208
Also know where some 8-lug Jeep axles are but they won't come cheap.
I found a Dana 60 front and the rear is either a D60 or 70. Idk. Didn't ask. They're under a mid-80's fire truck with some big leaf springs. I can get these with 4.11 ratio for $500 from a friend.
It will be daily driven and not see much highway. Occasional trails and might pull a travel trailer time to time.
Would my 4" spring lift with SOA SF be too much lift for 35"s?
What transfer case/axle combo do you recommend?
One guy offered me a 454 with a blower for my 401 today. (We'll see about this)
