tailgate measurements

Can anyone with a cj5 send me measurements of their tailgate? I'm swaaping one into my postal jeep (getting rid of the big swingout door in favor of tailgate/hatchback setup like the jeep hardtops). I've got a possible tailgate from a cj5, but I want to make sure it's not smaller than a cj7, cause even that is an inch narrower than my current door opening. Thanks for the help.

Re: tailgate measurements

The CJ-5 tailgate is 37.25 inches wide and 15 inches tall. I think all CJ-5 tailgates are the same size.
