All, I've been looking at the early CJs (1970-1971) and the intermediates (up to '74 so I can avoid emissions testing). I like the Dauntless V6 and so was looking at the '70s and '71s, but am now leaning more toward the intermediates. Based on what I've read, it has better steering and brakes, and perhaps better parts availability (stock and aftermarket) for the inline 6. The open knuckle Dana 30 probably has a slightly better turning radius than the D27, although I haven't specifically read that. Read the comparisons of the Dana 20 TC vs the D18 - like the overdrive option, but that's not available with a D20. Any noticeable highway ride difference with the additional length of the intermediate? Any thoughts on the V6 vs I6 comparision, or anything else. Intended use would be light to moderate off roading and occasional street use. Came across a '74 with the 258 that's unmodified and seemingly doesn't have any significant rust/rot, so am considering it. Any advice regarding that model? Thanks!
