Re: CJ3B Engine Swap
I second the recomendation for the 231 Buick. I have one in my 5, and the short mile I have driven it it had plenty of mucle even with a 3 speed. I could chirp the tires on dry payvement in 4wd, I don't however recomend it, that is why the d18 is still sitting on the shop floor. I got quadratrac axles for mine the input and out put lines up and they are only slightly wider. Dana 44 from a q track waggie and some welding will put you on a good base.
If you want bigger, go j4000 truck, It had ofset 60 rear 44 front, D18 and T18 sweet set up. I had one for my 5 swap and got greedy and sold it. I have not seen another since.
