Re: cj5 vs cj7
CJ7: longer, more room for the driver (could be important if you're a big guy) and supplies, possibly less twitchy at highway speeds, extra length may help in some rockcrawling situations, longer driveshaft means less angle problems with a lift.
CJ5: shorter. tight fit for big guys, more manuverable in tight spots, shorter length may help in some other rockcrawling situations, better looking (IMHO) "classic Jeep" appearance.
Me, I prefer (and own) a CJ5, but if I'd found a good 7 instead of a 5 I'd probably be happy with that, too.
