Jeep offered the 232 and the 258 I6. I don't recall at what model year the 232 was discontinued and the 258 became the only I6. Either engine is a good durable engine. They also offered a 304 V8 as an option in 1978. There were no other engines available OEM for that model year. Since it is a CJ5 it will have either a T150 3spd or a T18 4spd and a Dana 20 transfer case.

Unless the PO(s) have made modifications.....
