    Tell me if this is a crazy idea...

    You got ball and claw in the front and 10 spline in the rear, you will need to replace the front and change the axel shafts in the rear, so you may as well run the ones you have set up with arb's.

    V8 with turbo 350 swap.

    I have the same set up. You will need to address the cooling issue, shift linkages, t-case mounting and drive shaft length and about 100 other things.
