CJ-8 Engine and Tranny replacement

Guys, I am contemplating upgrading my '81 scrambler to a bigger engine and an automatic tranny (the latter necessary to appease the wife so she will ok the $ for the engine upgrade and so she can drive it).

My only problem is, I have no idea where to start. I currently have the original 4 cylinder that's been bored out with overhead cams. I was looking to get a new small block 350 hp crate engine to put in there. Any ideas where to start, things to be aware of, helpful tips, etc? Any info is extremely helpful!

Thanks

Check out Novak Adapters, they have a lot of good information on Chevy and Ford engines with multiple transmissions to bolt together.
