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)
