If you had 3-4 thousand for drivetrain in CJ5
Here is the deal, I picked up a '81 CJ5 with the intent to rebuild it as a capable off road rig. Here is what I am working with:
4.2l 6 cylinder
SR4 four speed
300 transfer case
Dana 30 front
AMC 20 rear (shot)
Spring over with 36" tires.
I love the big tires and the stance it currently has and would like to keep it close in size, but maybe go a bit wider.
If you had 3-4 grand to build a reliable rig what would you do? I would like specifics if possible. Axles, tcase, tranny, springs?
I am capable of doing welding, cutting, fab, and most of the skills required. Not at the level of you folks, but I get by.
Thanks for your input.
