difference in front clips??
Could someone tell me if there is a difference in size between a CJ-5,7 or 8 front clip? Is one longer or wider than another or are the front clips the same?? I am thinking of using one and need to know if there is a difference.....thanks jeepers!!!!!!!!!

Oh lets see here.. I'm pretty sure the cj7,8,and cj5(after i believe 74,but don't quote me on the year) Are the same. The yj wranglers are An inch or so longer, and the postal jeeps are different also.

I believe CJ-5's used thier short front fenders/hood until 1971. after that the CJ-5,7 and 8 have the same front ends, also postal jeeps used the pre-71 short front ends much later than 1971. (i have a '78 with the short fenders on it)
