Default Mud racing MJ

I'm building a new mud racer this winter to run across the river in OH. Rules over there are tire size only, which is alot different then the street stock rules we run in WV. I've been collecting parts and trucks for a few months and finally ready to start. I have this truck and another parts truck, two vortec 350's, a 2 wheel drive 350 T were gonna modify to bolt to a 241c and started the cowl hood to clear the air cleaner.

Subbed...Nice looking MJ just as it is. Looking forward to seeing what it can do with a 350 under the hood.

Thanks guy's,I was going to just small block the xj I built Missy last winter (here's the link, it explains what we do alittle better. https://www.cherokeeforum.com/f46/xj-mud-racer-65163/ ) But with the added HP I went to the MJ for longer wheelbase and stronger unibody and suspension points. This jeep will get a cage, small lift and 8.8 rear. Were gonna run in a points series that is run every other week from april to oct. Here's a pic of Missy's xj and the blazer I built my engine builder 2 yrs ago, He owe's me...LOL

Finished the hood, if you don't count the 10 hrs of blocking it'll need...LOL. Oh well it'll look good flat black and from the stands.
