    Hi guys I know there's alot out there on this swap, but not with the answer to my question.. Ill be short...I found. Yj windsheild complete with wipers and motor and hinges, for $100 can't go wrong, my question....will a 76+ soft top fit with correct mounting hardware...I know that ill will fit the tub with slight mods, defrost ducts etc..I know its the same angle as the 76+ windhields so the doors should be fine and I know they both measure 55" accross at the top...shoud work but would like a little reassurance...or is there an easier way to get the 76+ soft top to it the 73... as the oem windshield that is on there is in ok shape minor rust along the bottom of the windshield glass...any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks ken

    The top and doors for a YJ are comparable measurements for a CJ-7. Too long and wrong door contours for a CJ-5
    With a '76 up CJ or a YJ windshield frame you would need a '76-'83 CJ-5 top.

    Thanks for the reply....I know the doors for CJ7 and YJ are different...not worried about the door so much...I have a 76+cj5 top with matching doors, but the top won't fit on my 73cj5 due to windshield angle, doors fit fine,well except against the windshield again do to the angle...my question is if I put a YJ windshield frame on the CJ5 body, then will my 76+cj5 soft top then fit

    Ahh, now we know you have a '76 and newer CJ-5 soft top. The answer is yes, with the '76 up windshield which I mentioned above. This has been done by several of our members here iirc.
