CJ5 Hardtop Question

I'm selling a CJ5 Hardtop on eBay and have had some people ask me if it would fit a 73 CJ5. As far as I know it will fit years 75 1/2 - 81. Could someone take a look at the pictures I have posted on eBay and tell me what years they think it would fit.

Thanks. Happy Holidays everyone and Happy Jeepin'

Re: CJ5 Hardtop Question

If the width of the top where it meets the windshield is the same as the width of your CJ7 windshield (the one in the pictures) it will fit '76-83. Pre-76 windshields are about 4" wider than '76-83 (which is the same as your CJ7).

'75 CJ5,258 w/Howell EFI,T18a,4.27's,33's,On-board air,Warn 8274

Measure across the top, where the windshield frame goes.

The older models were wider 58"s i think and the newer ones are narrower 54"??? Any one else help out?

Re: CJ5 Hardtop Question

Thanks Snowtow and Matt. You guys are right. The top is the same width as my CJ7 so it must be a 76-83.

Thanks guys.

Happy Holiday.
