Those things were in a previous post. Stock L29 heads, stock bore and stroke 454, 9.5:1 compression.

I think it would run well and I would love it, should hit my power goals, but could be just a tad on the big side for a tow rig. 95% of the time it will be my daily driver though. I think for the towing I'll do, 5K - 7K pounds, it won't be TOO radical.

The Lunati cam is to much for your application and build. It will kill off quite a bit of low end 1500-2500 rpm torque which is what you need for your real application and the idle will be a little rough. If you are smart you will stay with a cam spec. like the two I previously gave you and save some money on the cam itself.

Look if you are trying to have a cool little run around town jeep that will get sideways as fast as forward when you nail it, this 454 will do that easy and a nice dual exhaust and muffler choice will give it all the cool sounds you need.

Don't overthink this project. Just make some decisions and GET STARTED.

I looked back, but didn't see any cam suggestions, just those flowtek heads and such
