scrap built CJ7
Just wondering if anybody has ever stuck a 429 in a jeep or heard of someone doing that. If so what did it take to get it in and sit level? I found one for cheap so i was just curious. also anybody know a good place to get a rebuild kit for a AMC 304 other than northern?
 
I've got a 460 sitting in my garage, but I wouldn't even think about putting it in a street legal CJ. Too much hpower, weight and a slew of mounting/space problems come to mind.
However, a 2wd Mud race truck might be in the cards eventually...
That said, I have seen a few Big Blocks in Cjs, even saw a Viper V-10 in a trade mag once.
If the $$$ is there, anything is possible.
 
Saw one with a Caddy 500 not 2 days ago.
Looked good and sounded great.
It can be done with proper planning.
 
Too much horsepower? Never. Go on Youtube and find the videos of the 600+HP CJ7 that a guy drag races all these fast cars with and destroys them. Just awesome.
 
nothing exceeds quite like excess.:cool:

can you say twisted, as in the whole jeep would probally twist in half. would have to majorly beef up the frame. but it would be cool :cool:
