Thanks for the info. I will go with a CJ7 then.
I am going to replace the engine with a mercedes OM617 diesel engine and put in the AX5 transmission from a YJ or use the Borg Warner 5 speed.
I love diesels and was going to put a mercedes diesel in my YJ, but was always a little jealous of the CJ crowd (so pretty!) so I think this would be great.
CJ7 it is.
(The reason I am going with the OM617 is that is is all mechanical. No computer at all.)
