304 in any early CJ is a bad idea, they are too light. The engine will make the entire truck front heavy and throw off everything, including steering. Plus, you will have to modify things like the firewall and frame to mount it and even fit it in there.. Otherwise, it would be sick. But a V-6 should be more than enough power for a CJ2, drop a 225 in there.
Wow, just realized how old this thread is.

I put a 350 in my cj2a and steering is fine. The 350 is 100 pounds more than the stock motor. Not sure what the 304 weighs in at. The v6 is a good choice do to the shorter length. I had to modify the fire wall and stretch the nose.

Well plans change a lot. I was gonna use a 350, then went to the 304 which i have in my possesson. But lately I have been thinking of keeping the original 4 cyl in it.
