Cool V8 s-10 4x4 engine swap

I have a 89 jimmy 4x4. the 4.3 is way tired, and needsto be but to rest, it runs like crap and acts up. so as i have done years ago when i had my first s 10 pickup and threw a rod in the 2.8. It's time to put in a v-8, i was thinkin 305 tbi, i dont want too much extra power, cause i will drive this everyday, and love to play on the beach. So if there is anyone out there who can tell me what i need to do the job that would be great. i have a rebuilt 700 r4 tranny and transfer case in the truck now. so i just need to knowis there anything special i need or can i just drop it in and go? thanks alot.

A 305 would be o.k, but for what you seem to want it for, I think you'd be happier with a mild 350 and either should drop right in without any trans concerns.
