Will an Early CJ5 tailgate work in the YJ tailgate opening?
In morphing my YJ into a "CJ9", I was looking in Q-tec, and got an idea, if it would work. I'm looking into doing the CJ tailgate, but, had a thought, what about the early CJ5 tailgates with the "Willy's" stamped on them? I'm talking about the late '50's-early 60's CJ's. The main question is, how much dimensionally do these early tailgates differ from the later CJ's? Not sure how many, if any, have done this. Thanks!
