    xj jeep with 3.73's

    37" ssr's
    36" sx's

    built 350 (making a solid 350 horse on the dyno)
    rebuilt 305 was a tbi motor with a cam to please the computer
    stock 350

    th350-208

    I think the scout body on the blazer chassis would look cooler:D

    I vote for the Scout. I am doing a Jeepster Commando body on K5 chassis and I want to fit 37's on it with as little lift as possible, I want to keep it long, low and wide for stability.

    Good luck!
