No.

Put something like like a 4.3 v6. Or a lighter weight 3.1/3.8 v6. Parts for those are everywhere. And they have all the low end torque that sucker will every need.

do propane on it or do a sidekick engine in it if you do anything. yota axles 5.29s and a 4:1 box and it will crawl good on 35s. also jeep yj sprins are good for the lift and are easy since the shackle is front mount.
