CJ5 trans options and opinions

Acquired a 5 with no drivetrain. I am looking for opinions of what to use for trans and transfer. I have a TF998/999, T176, and an AW4. Also a NP231 and a dana 300 t case. Anyone know how these will work out as far as driveshaft length? The AW4 and 231 looks like it will only be one ujoint and the slip yoke. Interesting tranny mount and little(none) flex. Also how would the clocking on the t case(d300) be with a TF998 with the 231 adapter flange on it? Anyone got a spare TF998/d300 adapter?

Thanks,
Jackie

I like the T-176 Dana 300 combo.
You pick the combo before we pick the drive shaft lenghts.

I like the T176, D300 combo... I prefer stick. If you can find a T18 granny you'll be set... (you're limited to what you can bolt up to it) ie: transfercases... unless you get an adapter, possibly different output shaft and or input for the t-case depending on the set-up etc.

I'm leaning toward the AW4 and the D300. Anyone know if the spline count and the clocking are compatable? Just happen to have the AW4, wiring and 4.0 sitting on the garage floor. Sound interesting? It would be more of a daily driver Jeep with 31" tires max. Also has 4.10 gears-hence overdrive needed.

Thanks,
Jackie

Don't know for sure because I haven't done it myself, but I've heard that the adapter out of an AMC Eagle will do the trick.

Lot's of projects... too little time and $$.

I don't see much choice here. The auto transmissions are typically long. I've always heard that you can't get an auto to fit in a CJ5.

You probably need to take a boat load of measurements to get a clue of which transmissions are legitimate candidates for your jeep.

If you happen to get an auto tranny into your CJ5, let me know. I'll come and get that T176/D300 off your hands!

I have seen a 350 hydro in a cj5 and 2A, so they will fit, but I have never done it and don't know how.

And just because it's been done doesn't mean that it works. I've seen pictures of six-inch driveshafts . . .

if you want short and heavy duty, hoe about a T-18 and Scout Dana 300 combo?
