    Yeah if I can vote I say no tube fenders or corners. Just some good sliders. I like the old cj builds like how yours will be with stock fenders much more

    Maybe use a trail corner but for the most part i'd keep it how it is. I like stock fenders on those.

    Yeah no need to armor it all up its a cj5. It's about to small to smack on anything. Just some siders and rock out.

    I've going back on forth not he fenders. I deff want rocker and corner protection. You know some of the things I decide im Gojng to get some opinions first. I don't wanna mess it up. But then again it will suck to be on a muddy trail and slide into a tree and dent it.

    The d20 uses a bull gear type input where as the jeep d300 uses a spline input. We have a scout d300 at work. Haven't done any research to know for sure if it's a direct swap or not. Another option would be to use a t176 4 speed and d300 from an 80's cj.
    Assuming the jeep has the t150 3 speed, you could find a t18 (granny 4 speed) and keep your d20.

    I would think the t-18 would be harder to find. The 300 I'm getting is a done deal. Going to pick it up in the morning. Its will be a few weeks before I do the clutch so Ill have to shop around a little.

    Got new shoes today. I really like them. Im on the fence about a small lift. The only reason Im even considering a lift is for the new leaf's and all new bushings and grade 8 bolts. I can just see these old leafs and tiny little bolts breaking.
