I was wondering what happened to you! If you look at my build thread, you'll see that I unfortunately had to abandon the restoration of the jeep with no name; I am currently on my way to Las Cruces to go pick up the High Plains drifter, another 1976 CJ five however this one isn't fully running condition and is almost flawless.

Yep, still around -just not relevant! (to the CJ side of things at least)

Running out of shop space, and time to turn any wrenches. Much like you, I knew there was no way to put enough into my Jeep (Jeepster) to get it reliable enough to be able to enjoy- which is the point, right?

Ending up solving my long running issues of 5 ppl vs. 4 seats with a new JK unlimited.



Now back to that little green gem of yours...

Even from here, I can tell you

A little polish on that patina, a set of 2.5" springs and new shoes, and you're good-to-go!

Congrats Fred, I look forward to following along as you write this chapter of your (Jeep) life.

I don't think it's an acme. My acme doesn't look like that. Check this thread

Not for a 1975 CJ5 but an interesting pic of how the windows in the hardtops for the Willys CJ's worked

The Meyer/Orville tops were "modern" at least. I have a standard window crank, and the window rolls all the way up and down, allowing me to pay tolls, and use drive-ups.

The doors latch to the top though, so you normally could not use it with a bikini. I've thought about it before. Normally, I'll keep the heavy top off all summer, then throw on a bikini when it rains. But I'd like to have doors for the rainy days as well.

I think I could rig a latch like the soft-doors use, that bolts to the body. But then I could probobly just pick up some soft-doors for the summer as well. That would be better.....except the soft-doors use a different hinge system then the Meyer doors.

So, checking back a year later, anyone ever figure out what brand this top is?

It's midnight, I'm watching "Surf Nazis Must Die" and can't sleep. I was looking through pictures of my CJ-5 and realized I never got an answer.

I found another CJ-5 with the same top on the Jeepz site....curtcanada is his screen name, and he was selling one seven years ago. The first pic is his.

I've got a set with my Koenig hard top with roll up windows. Still have the glass and the roll up cranks work. Because of the door shape hump, they fit outside the body. I'm not a fan of them and they're sitting in my garage. I would honestly rather have the kind that fit the contours with sliding windows. I can send pics when I get home. They're out there, just hard to find.

Looking through SKT's hardtop thread, it looks as if this is a Dean Sure Top.

If anyone can confirm this, that would be great.

Mine don't roll up, they slide and have a knob on a track that tightens, to keep the windows in place.

Mine are actually roll up. They have an odd mounting plate that attaches to the body and windshield frame. The door itself sits outside of the body and seals when latched. They're pretty heavy. Like I said, I'd rather have the type that sit flush with the body. They look similar to the ones on this green CJ6. I'd prefer the Myers (I think) type shown in the picture of the silver 6,

Ahh... Just noticed the dates- this thread started in 2007. I was answering the original question.
