If this is going to be street driven, seriously consider some type of overdrive transmission. For tcase, look at a 241 from a GM/Chevy and put it all together with factory GM parts and forget about aftermarket adapters for the stock tcase.

Yeah, that sounds like the best way to go, really. I'm a little intimidated by the wiring to get an overdrive trans to work, but I wouldn't be opposed to a manual trans if it happened to come along. I haven't bought anything but the jeep yet, so I'm still in the infancy of the project. I'm following this build to see where it ends up, as well as considering other drivetrain that might be cheaper and or easier to make work. I just know I want a dependable fsj, and I'm not rich.

A 700R4 is a single wire for the TC lockup. It is super easy.

If you use something newer like a 4l80e, a aftermarket controller is idiot proof I hear. That is the route I plan on taking.

As for the motor mounts, it looks like I'm gonna start tearing back into the truck the weekend after Thanksgiving. I want to do my best to do a bolt on mount, but worst comes to worse, they may end up like the LS series YJ mounts from Novak. The directions state how far from the front crossmember to weld the mounts. I welded mine in fully and never test fit the engine once, a leap of faith I know, but when i dropped the 5.3 in, it was perfect.

That sounds great! I can't wait to see how your mounts turn out! I bought my 1 ton 6.2 stuff, I just need to pick it up. This is going to be the coolest vehicle I've built so far...

J10 Chevy 6 2 Swap

Hey chvlfrk, I thought you were THE chevy guy. A 302 was a 327 with a 283 crank, in 67 it was exactly that. In 68 and 69 they had their own blocks and cranks. A 283 with a 327 crank is a 307.
Chevy didnt make powerglides in 76 and it is a very unlikely swap. Most likley a th350.
th350 pan is square with a dog earred corner. th400 is shaped like the state of texas, streached a little from top to bottom.
Ill give you any help you need as long as it not concerning defiling a Ford.
