307 SBC for Jeep !

I'm in need of help, I'm considering to do a cam swap in my std 307 sbc that's in my Jeep Cj.

The Jeep is on 38" tires and has 4.10 gear's the transmission is Th-350 w. stock converter and the engine is mostly stock aside from the performer rpm intake and holley dp 650 carb. the heads, pistons and such is stock, and it has exhaust manifold's. I'm going to use this jeep mostly for off roading trips and fun, so low end torque is a must. along with getting the best mileage possible.

Best regards.

You really should continue on the 3-page thread you started before, that's where all the conversation took place....
350 SBC build for Jeep. Need Help !!! Intake, carb, cam, efi and mileage.

But to answer your question, leave the stock cam in it. Until you break down and install a quality exhaust system with 1 5/8" long-tube headers, you're just wasting your time and money with a cam change in my opinion.

You could consider getting a 390 VS Holley. Dual plain high rise manifold will help, too.
