So I decided that the 4.0 just does not have enough power for me anymore, and being the Chevy guy I am...

Dude, what type of motor is this?

Well had a friend who owed me. So I worked a deal on a motor that was going in his sand car. Stroker LS2 with a Kenne Bell Supercharger. It may be a bit excessive, but they don't call me Squirrel for nothing.

Well it is stroked to a 402ci has 8.5:1 compression uses an air to water intercooler and has put down a engine dyno run at Turn Key Engine at 772 horse.:D My thoughts are if I can smoke all 4 tires and they never hook up the axles may hold for a while. Looks like I need some lifetime guarantee axles and U-joints. Anyone want to give me a set of Dana 60 RockJocks?

I would not recommend running a Dana 60 HP (RockJock) with that power. You might get away with it on the front but the rear will be in pain. Comp guys can break them with that amount of HP.

Consider www.truehi9.com (http://www.truehi9.com) MEGA9 third members and 60/9 axles. There are many housings available that will work (Currie, Spidertrax, etc.)

If you Re-Fi the house, you may be able to come up with these :D

LOOOOLZ oh man, you are going to bend that Jeep in half! The first time you step on it the glass is gonna crack HAHAH!

That is sick man, major kudos for even considering it! That motor is a beast, wonderful find! :)

Well I think I have just about pegged the BS-O-Meter. So here is what I am really working on. I just could not resist the picture of the LS2 with my Jeep in the background, and with the spare 4.0 on the cherry picker it just had to be posted. This is my friends Buckshot X5 that we are putting a little more motivation in. Better choice than the Jeep since it is about 1500 pounds lighter. But do not think for a heartbeat that I would not consider something of this magnatude for the Jeep, there is still the 580 horse motor that is being pulled from the car.:D

nice, thats going to be a sick rail. wonder what that kind of power would do to a jeep for real. probably twist the frame right in two. lol we all got pwnd!

wonder what that kind of power would do to a jeep for real. probably twist the frame right in two.

It would be cool! My jeep has a full cage and with some frame plates and some way bigger axles, it would be perfect. So $20,000 for a motor, $5,000 for a 4L80E trans, $15,000 for some Portals, and there you go. Estimated build cost $40,000+ Then you need to upgrade the cooling system, fuel system, and a few other things. But for my money I think I would want one of these 1000 horse toys. We used to camp with some friends of Larry Minor in Glamis and he had one of these and a Top Fuel version that was the craziest thing I have ever seen!
