CJ5 doors all the same?

Were there any changes to the door dimensions over the years? I'm buying some acme doors from a '65 to fit on my '76.

I would check the hinges to see if they are in the same location.

Not sure if Acme kept the same top dimensions either because Windshield angle sure is a lot different

That would mean the angle on the door were it meets the windshield would be different

Some were here there is a picture: http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f8/pi...ardtop-844844/

Won't work.
In 1976, the windshield angle changed, making the door shape different.
