Well, jeeps are pretty simple.
CJ-5 is 81" or 83" weelbase.
CJ-7 is 93" wheelbase.
C-101 or Commando (1st generation) is 101" wheelbase (these are rare and sought after by jeep enthusiasts).
C-103 or Commando (2nd generation) is 103" wheelbase.
CJ-8 is 103" wheelbase (these are rare and sought after by jeep enthusiasts as well).
Another vehicle that makes a fine swap, mainly due to them being rusted out all the time, is the International Harvester Scout II. They came with sturdy drivetrains and D44's front and rear from '74 to '80, they are also very cheap.
