Cj7 or Cj5

I have a friend that just recently bought a jeep but was told that it was a Cj7, but it really doesnt look like a cj7 since its kinda small and looks like a cj5. I was wondering if there is anything I can check to see the difference. Thanx

Re: Cj7 or Cj5

go to the readers rides section and look at a CJ7 and a CJ5 the most obvious difference will be the door opening, the CJ7's are longer and don't have the curve in the door opening. I'm not much for ascii art but it looks something like this: CJ7 - |__| CJ5 - |_r|

Okay, here's the easiest way to tell (my son could tell when he was 2). What shape are the door openings?
If they're a full "U" shape it's a 7.
