75 CJ5 Windjammer help!!

I have a 1975 CJ5, pretty much stock... I would love to grab a windjammer for a road trip but obviously they dont make them. I have read that its possible to put one of the later windjammers on it?? Any help would be awesome!!

Thanks

A rollbar is a rollbar. It should fit good enough to work. The ones I've seen leave a fairly big gap around them anyway, so the fit is not that precise.

Thanks so much... Kind of my assumption, I talked to some guy at Bestop who said you can attach them to the ground if you can find some type of hooks... My thought is that its only supposed to block wind, not totally get rid of it.

I'd advise against hooking it to the ground, kind of defeats the purpose if you want to drive the Jeep! But yes, they are supposed to hook to the floor of the Jeep as well as the rollbar. I believe most of them use 1" straps that would attach to a footman loop.

Just put my new windjammer on the other day and the fit on my '5 is somewhat awkward to say the least. It seems like it is much better suited to a '7 or a YJ, but it does serve its purpose, so I won't complain. It blocks quite a bit of wind.

If it's not leakin', it's probably empty '84/'77 CJ7 Ford 302 4bbl Holley
