the 360 is going for a fresh rebuilt a the shop ... I will try to make something with 400-500 hp .. In the cj it will be a TBI 4L because i'm doing more rock crawl than mud... The AMC 360 will go in my yj instead.. the 4L will devlop somewhere betweer 400 and 410 hp 430-450 lbs/torque.. its enought to detroy my poor d44's... Up next 38x12,5xr15

That tube on the rear quarters looks awesome. How is that welded on? Just to the sheet metal? Or does it have some hidden reinforcement?
