    LS? Not familiar. I owned a Comanche pickup in the late 80's- early 90's and was fond of that 4l. Made a capable little truck.

    I had a Cherokee Sport with factory H.O. 4.0L that was pretty fierce after the CAI, MAF sensor relocation, 'puter burn and Magnaflow exhaust. It got smooshed in a MVA tho...

    LS is a Chevy V8 engine- very common swap in a lot of vehicles nowadays. Itís pretty easy to swap in, can be bought pretty inexpensive and the HP gained from it is best bang for your buck

    Don't see any kind of communications in your prep, or CB antenna.

    I'm partial to mud tires over A/T tires, the Goodyear Wrangler MT/R did very well both on and off-road on my old Cherokee, even in deep snow.

    I'd skip the V8 swap unless you're going to update the axles as well, but then you're getting into parts you can't get at a junkyard. If you have to many parts you can't get at a junkyard or off abandoned vehicles along a bug-out route, your setting yourself up to have a really neat stationary vehicle.

    Otherwise looks good, wish I still had one of the 3 cherokees I've owned right now.
    Opinions may vary, , it is the internets.

    I have CB, I just dont leave the antenna on- I keep it in the cab. I also bought a Baofeng UV5R I just need to make time to go take the test/classes.

    On the tires- I have ran mud terrains, I will not again. Tread life sucks... I have ran 35k this year alone on my Jeep running BFG KO2's and they're still in great shape.

    As of axles, my rear is a D44 and front is HP D30, both are trussed, regeared to 4.56 gears and have lockers and chromoly axle shafts. Trust me- it can easily handle a V8

    I mean what is more common than the most mass produced small SUV of all time? lol
    and the V8 I would be swapping in IF I ever did is by far Chevrolet's most used engine platform of all time- the LS.

    Parts would be readily available and everywhere...the only issue I would have is finding spare driveshafts since that would be custom. I could carry U-Joints and find them easily
    but the actual shaft itself would not be easy.

    Years ago we had a Cherokee Sport, the thing was a tank. We are on our 4th Jeep picking up a 2019 Cherokee Latitude last Saturday. The only thing that concerns me is all of the frigging electronics in the newer vehicles. Nice job, looks great!

    You have a good off-road vehicle, not implying that it isn't capable. I'd take that anywhere.

    BUT gears break, axles break, driveshafts break... replacements are not going to be fed-ex'd overnight. Which I had to do with my first jeep when the coolant expansion tank decided to give out driving past Denver going into the Rockies.

    SHTF - where are you going to get 4.56 gears, cro-moly axles and driveshafts.

    How is that V8 going to do if you have to swap to stock axles and gears? Because SHTF those are the parts you are going to have to swap to if you don't carry spares for every single critical part that can break.

    Just saying, the more custom it is, the less SHTF vehicle it is.
