    I'm wondering how much work it would be to swap my straight 6 to a 305 or 350 chevy motor. Will i have to use the chevy transmission and transfer case?

    Advance Adapters, and probably others, make bell housings to adapt a Chevy SB to a Jeep tranny. They also make motor mount kits, radiators with the proper inlet/outlet and all sorts of small pieces to make the swap pretty much bolt in.
