Re: 70CJ5 Mods
For swinging pedals, swipe a set out of a 72 and newer CJ. The 72 to 75 years were different than the 76 to 86, maybe someone else can make a more refined choice as to which one to use for your 70.
Assuming you have a V-6, you might have to locate the engine further ahead to squeeze a T350 in there.
Advance Adapters makes a kit for Saginaw steering box's into early CJ's. Kinda pricey, but if your not, or know someone who is handy fabricating, might be the way to go.
