Re: Jeep CJ 5 Tub Swap
The 74 frame rails are parallel, the 78 frame rails are wider in the rear. The change happened in 76. Anything made for 76 and newer will not fit 75 and older. (ask me about the nerf bars I bought for my 75 that I had to weld extra tube on to make them work)
The windshield changed in 76 too. pre 76, windshield almost vertical, post 76, windshield somewhat swept back. (Lucky for me, Best Top makes this very clear in their ordering info, so when I got my supertop, it fit my 75 just right [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] ).
