CJ hood lengths?

Does anyone know how much longer the CJ-7 hood is over a CJ-5? I am going to try and convert over to gain a bit more room for my V-8 in the Heepster. Thanks.

Re: CJ hood lengths?

I believe CJ5's and CJ7's were the same from cowl forwards, hoods and fenders are listed for CJ's, and the fenders from my CJ5 are the same as the ones from my CJ7, so I assume the hood is the same.

Should be 3". I believe all the difference in the wheelbase was made at the fenders and hood.

Don't know the exact measurements but '71 and older CJ-5/6 used the "short-fender" hood and all CJ-5 and 7
hoods from '72 and newer use the same hood. The '72 and newer is 3" longer. Nickmil.

Re: CJ hood lengths?

John-
I measured my 7 hood, hope these help-
Back edge to front edge 39.5"
Back edge to grille front edge 39.0"
Grill front edge to front of radiator cutout 3.5"
Grille front edge to grille back edge 6.5"
So, with a 7 grille, hood, and fenders, there should be appx 32.5" from the firewall at the lip where the back of the hood sits to the back of the radiator if it's a stock type. Hope this helps.
