Re: Engine, transmission replacement advice \'82 CJ7?
YOu want to keep this as inexpensive as possible...right? As for a trans, there are several you can use that will retain the same overall length as your current combo, therefore not having the expense of new driveshafts. A T18, NP435, and SM465 are all very close to the factory length when used in conjunction with the proper adapter, the big expense is an adapter, but there are various shortcuts to all of them, for instance a T5 bellhousing can be machined to accept an SM465, leaving only the tcase adapter to buy. BTW, I don't think an AX15 is a bolt in for a CJ with a 258.
