4.3 Chevy Vortec?  Should be a huge step up from where you were!  Is the rest of the driveline up to the increase?

yes it is

i put 24 spline chrome moly axles 

5 speed jeep transmission nv3550

when through the transfer box and put all new seals 

changed the third member to a heavy duty , got rid of the spacer that was needed for 

the lockers

had advanced adapters spec out all my needs, i became friends with Mathew Jackson

 

he has a land rover with a chevy v8 and had me put the same upgrades for the v6

this is a 2011 which has 200hp with 265 torque 

it should be a great all around rover now
