    Looking for a running or not 360 or 401 engine within a few hundred miles of North georgia.

    360s are plentiful and cheap. Nearly every old Wagoneer from the 1980s has one and they're not hard to find in the junkyards.. The 401 is another story. They were not nearly as common, and tend to bring pretty big money for even marginal condition. I've never paid more than $100 for a running 360, and a couple were free; I just had to remove them from the vehicle.
    To me, considering a 401 means you have a project that needs the added torque, such as a heavy vehicle. They are overkill (and possibly dangerous) for a small vehicle like a CJ. Many years ago, I had a '72 CJ5 with a 390 (predecessor to the 401) that had been rolled. It was way overpowered for that size vehicle, and thats what contributed to it getting rolled.

    Seems like the 360s are hard to come by around here. Don't need either but would like to have one just for the fun of it. A hot 360 would be all you could handle but can't help but wonder how a 401 would do.

    I ran a Howell fuel injected 401 in my cj5. Silly fun, just strengthen your frame , stretch wheelbase , Hi pinion 60 rear axle [ 4:88s Detroit 35spline axles disc brakes ]custom Alcan springs, spring under still , M.O.R.E. frame kit, steering , and shackle reversal, then a 9in front axle 88s Detroit internal hub kit , chrome moly axle shafts and ctm u joints . And only ran 35s, t18 and scout 300, my weak link. Ask me how, Yup big motor was fun [ $$$$$$$$$$$$$$ ]

    I'll touch base little closer. That might work. Is it all stock and original or has it been rebuilt?
    That's What I'm afraid of I'll be getting into with the 401!

    All stock, ran good when pulled . I scored a low mileage chevy drivetrain for my 6 project.
