Like Dabolt55 said, because this is the newbie check-in area, you may not get the answers you are looking for. I suggest you check out this forum area and post your questions there, I think you'll get a better response.

CJ Tech Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum
CJ General Discussion Forum - Jeep Wrangler Forum

In the mean time, I just like to say . . .

Be sure to check your oil and tire pressure before you drive it back home...

run gently going home...

the Jeep...especially a CJ5 will drive differently than any vehicle you have ever driven...

frequent stops to check fluids and take pictures...find a land mark...you will want to remember the trip...and update us...

also might not hurt to have differentials and transfer case levels checked before you venture too far...

do a hands off the wheel firm stop from about 30 or 35 mph to make sure she's grabbin on all four wheels...on the interstate when you get cut off is NOT the time to discover she has differential braking built in because of brake problems...

feel her out, and know her limitations...and you will be fine!
