Recently I bought a 1972 CJ5. Mostly for the hard top to put on my 71 CJ5. As I start checking it out, I get this crazy idea to put my spare odd fire engine in it and an automatic transmission. So with the 72's radiator being set farther forward and the three extra inches added to the front end. I figure my odd fire engine could be moved 5 inches more forward then the 304 in it now. That might be enough for a 700r4. Of course it might be more work then I can handle though it almost seems just right. Also I like the lower angle of driveshaft with the Dana 18. That also might help when running a short drive line.
