It's not just the tubs - the frames are completely different. The '75 and prior had frames that pretty much ran straight from from to rear. The '76+ CJ got a frame that was narrow in the front and got wider in the rear. This means that a '75 tub would not easily fit onto a '76 frame because the body mount locations would be wrong. Also, the '75 tub has a tool box under the pass seat whereas the '76+ did not, and the cowl got a vent added where the '75 was smooth.
As far as tops go, if you've got the angled windshield, you order a '76+ top no matter what the tub is.
