new to the jeep thing

okay i'm a little confused i've had my 81 cj5 for about 2 years and i'm getting frustrated. from what i can tell its got an old rancho 2.5" lift and 32/11.50s unsure off gears top of amc20 is stamped "N" so track lock and 3.57 i think. 151ci here is the kicker it has a 5 speed from all info i can find they did'nt put 5 speeds in cj5s untell 82. i need to know if maybie late 81s were realy 82s cause i've been wanting to start building it but well alot of stuff for 81s are differnt than for 82s am i making any ther some way to tell if my 5 speed is stock.

No 5 spd for 81s, SR4 or T176 4 spd. Someone probably replaced the failed SR4 with a T5, the SR4s had ballbearings on the mainshafts, prone to failure.
