    Nice jeep. Just an aesthetic preference...but I find the 76 and later windshield that is laid back a bit more to look wrong. Of course, I like the laid back look on the cj7 and 8. Maybe the longer wheelbase and the fact you only see 7s and 8s with the laid back windshield make it look better. But I like the more vertical windshield on the 5.

    Nice find for someone. Its in great shape from the outside and if its that nice mechanically, its a decent price. Although I would try to talk them down a bit.

    You need to see a side view with no top, the roll bar and windshield are at the same angle and looks right. I agree they look different with the top on.

    True, but the windshield doesn't line up with the body line on the cowl, and the whole aesthetic is thrown off by the increased angle. Makes the nose look too long and the body too short.

    Personally , I never cared for the CJ upright windshield........nor the narrow , small site picture.........69 and later curved top frames are a big improvement .
