Is any body can give me some advice on how to upgrade/convert my 70 CJ5 to the following?
1) Upgade from floor pedal to swing pedal.
2) Convert from 3spd manual with dana 18 to automatic.
3) From manual steering to power steering.

Any advice/info is appreciated.

Thanks in advance,

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.
