350 in a YJ, Where to get info?

Just wondering if anyone knows for any articles on the web for swapping a Chevy 350 in a YJ. Can the stock running gear handle the V8 power or is a whole new running gear needed?

Tons of stuff on this one in the tech pages of off-road.com and every BBS. You will be faced with all kinds of questions about your power train. You may end up changing much more than the motor before your done depending upon your use of the Jeep. There are others on this BBS that have the whole canned answer on file I'm sure. Gathering the information and parts is half the Fun. Good Luck!

Stock running gears will hold up for a while, depending on what kind of trails you drive. I have stock axles with 4.11's and 35's, no lockers, and everything still works fine behind the V8. feel free to email me if you have any specific questions.
