Default 85 Cherokee Chief build

Howdy guys, i've been talking about doing this for awhile so i'll upload the current pics. The motor is a XXX 5.0 H.O out of an 88 mustang, don't have time yet for the machine work so i'm waiting on doing new cam, and boring and dropping new forged pistons, it has a stage 2 intake manifold with shorty headers and an edlebrock 600 cfm carb. I'm eventually going to take the time to put the EFI in, have everything just not the time, I also bought an AX15 with the novak adapter so I can run the jeep tranny without too much modification, I bought the np231 tcase but i was smart and did not check the splines.. so gotta either find another or change to a 23. The axles are getting swapped in the next couple months, haven't decided what to get yet. But yeah i'm taking pics of the whole process and i'll try to show how to make this work the best I can!
