Re: CJ-5 Hardtop question
The tubs from '55-75 were virtually the same. A hardtop SHOULD fit between any of those years (gotta remember murphy's law though!). In '72 they lengthened the hood, but that wouldn't affect the tub/hardtop fitting. In '76 the tub was changed, some differences around the doors, and especially the windshield frame. I've been told you can use a frame from a '76 or later on a '55-75 Jeep and use a later hardtop, but I've never tried it. The jeep you don't know the year on is probably a later than '76 model. By the way, is it a metal hardtop? I'm running one on my '74.
It's all a state of mind, and if you don't mention the state of my mind, I'll be happy to overlook yours!
