New 75 CJ5 Owner and need a crash couse

I just got a stock 75 CJ5 and i am just looking for any nuance for that year i should be aware of

I have driven wranglers and Cherokees varying from 88-2008 but am unfamiliar with this generation.


I want to baby the CJ and my main question is about the 4WD transfer. Is it like the 4wd transfer in later models, driving for 4H and complete stop for 4L>? or is there another process for it>?

But any other information would be greatly appreciated. It is a great Jeep and I want to have for a very long time.

The only thing you really need to know is to open your wallet, and take everything out of it. Now take a good look in the wallet. That's what it's going to look like as long as you own it. Sweet Jeep!

I'm not sure what tomorrow will bring, but it can't be any worse than what I've already been through.

Welcome to JeepForum and congratulations. That is a great looking CJ5. The biggest nuance with that year is availability of some parts. That is considered an intermediate CJ built from '72-'75.

In regards to your question about the transfer case, it looks like your CJ5 is stock, so you should be running the Dana 20 TC. It is a non-synchronized transfer case. You need to be stopped to move it in or out of any transfer case position. No shifting on the fly.

Be sure to fill out your profile. It makes it easier for others to answer your questions if the specs are already listed.

If the hubs are locked in you can shift in and out of 4Hi at just about any speed. The internal parts will be turning at the same speed in that situation. I do it regularly on my '75 in the winter when the roads are sketchy with snow.

Good point. Trying to move that D20 lever forward while driving seems like it might be a bit tricky. Of course my linkage is really sloppy which makes it difficult at any speed and I don't have to worry about snow around here.

Keep it stock and you will be amazed out how reliable and trouble free an intermediate can be. On my 1973 which also had a plow every mod I did was to modernize certain components for reliability. A weber 34 carb, Pertronix points replacement and an MSD 6 digital are the modernazations I did. Most plow Jeeps havent been 4-wheeled hard due to the PIA of removing the plow hardware every time you wanted the ground clearance. I removed the plow and sold for scrap. Yours looks much better, but do you really want to plow with a manual trans and manual steering. Thats a real work out.

Congrats! I saw this on CL for a while now, and glad someone semi-local bought it and will be active on the forum.

Nice looking 75. Mine's not nearly in as good of shape.
