    no, the CJ5 drivetrain is a bad idea in a 72 K5.

    Translated:

    I have an opportunity to buy a Jeep CJ5 with a fuel-injected 4.0 litre motor and auto tranny. It will only cost me $1,000, so I'm really considering buying it. This weekend I ran a pretty tight trail here in Colorado called 21rd (twenty-one road) and I started thinking I might need a "skinnier" vehicle. Don't worry about my cool chevy drivetrain and axles from my 89 K5, they could easily be swapped into my 72 K5.

    Do you guys think I should jump on this or pass on it?

    ;)

    Go For It !!!! Find a 258 AMC 6 cylinder, swap the crank and rods into the 4.0, and you have a 270 CI 6 popper.:D

    Clear as crystal now...GJ on the translation!

    I would pass on a CJ5 totally. They have a very short wheelbase.
