we are currently building a cj5 to work and play with on our farm in tennessee, so we put a 6" lift on and completly rebuilt the drivetrain. we are now finishing up the body work and preping it for that textured paint(bedliner stuff). as it sits now it has a 302 ford and the origional three speed trany, but we bought a 4bt today and got it in the garage, so now the question is can we use the stock three speed tranny or should we go with the nv4500, keep in mind that this jeep is never going on the road again and probably not over 25-35 mph. thanks for any imput!bounce

I think overall drivetrain length is going to be an issue in the CJ5 unless you can somehow shift the transmission/t-case forward somewhat and use an electric fan. 6" lift on a CJ5? wow, that's a lot - I hope you've got wider than stock axles on that. Very unstable imo!
