Most likely you will have to change the trans mount & the drive shaft length. CJ5s didn't come with autos because the wheelbase is so short & autos are so long that they couldn't get good geometry from the end of the trans to the rear diff. You can use a 727 Automatic from a Wagoneer or Jeep truck that has been bolted to a Jeep Transfer Case with an Advance Adapter (Adapter cost $349.95). There are other options available as well, such as 4L60w/Dana 300. Check out or Google it for more info.
