Re: jeep experiment
Sounds like an fun project. I like the idea of keeping the axles at full width. It seems like it would add stability to the vehicle. My only question is why stop at the 350 engine? Since you are adding huge tires, a tough drivetrain, huge lift and everything else, why not go with some huge displacement like a 454 or 502? Also use the biggest brakes you can find to fit your axles. Stopping 44's is tough on brakes. Also, what about using a CJ-8. Those have a longer length that would help with the driveline angles that would certainly be a problem in a shorter CJ-5 or 7. That's just my thoughts. If you do the project keep us posted and let us know how it turns out.
