Hello All

Quick question(s) . What year ( if any) CJ5`s came with an opening tailgate ? I`m just kind of curious as to if it was an option on my 79 CJ5 .

Also in my Chilton`s manual , regarding catalytic converters , it covers up to 1978 and mentions nothing about 79 or 80 , then continues on from 81 and up . Didn`t the 79 or 80`s come with cat converters ?

Thanks a million

My 79 CJ5 is supposed to have a cat according to the underhood sticker, but it doesn't, and it passes emissions just fine. No tailgate, but then I have a fiberglass body. With so little room behind the rear seat a tailgate would seem kinda pointless anyway.
