Turd Polishing

So I got a 1975 DJ5 the other day and its in pretty good shape. I just want it for the brakes. So my buddy says how hard is it to convert it to fourwheel drive. Me I think its no problem since I have 80 percent of the parts lying around. The question I have is about the drivelines. If I use a manual tranny from a CJ will the drivelines work in the old bird.

I *think* the DJs and CJ5s had a very similar frame, so everything should go in without major modification. Might have to change the length of a driveshaft or that kind of thing, but nothing major. There were a few 4WD DJs built. I think one of our Alaskan board members has one.

Re: Turd Polishing

The first year that JP Magazine came out.. they had an article on DJ5 Conversion to 4WD and Left hand steering. It was spread over several issues and a fairly good article.

Anyone got them?

I've been hunting for these articles.. I'm missing a couple of 'em.
