53 cj3b

I have an old 53 cj3b body and frame i am looking to add a drivetrain to. I am a mopar guy so I have a few 318 and 360 sitting in my shop waiting for a home. I measured and it appears they will fit. I am wondering what tranny, t case and axles should i use? I have a 46 cj that is bone stock and have two complete drivetrains for spare parts. I want to go crazy with the cj3b

Depends on what you want out of it. I would use a TF727 for the tranny if I had a Mopar. I have one in my Scout and it is great. You can get an IH 727 which uses the dana20 and swap the IH tailshaft onto the Mopar 727 and then use a Jeep or IH dana20.
