CJ5 rock armor thread
 
With my tiny bits of spare time, I've been searching a bit for some CJ5 armor. Specifically, front tube fenders. Once I started searching, I found nobody makes any. All of the websites specifically state "CJ7" in the description.

This got me thinking about rear wheel well armor. There is such a huge market for these things for TJs and JKs and the lot of them, but nothing for a CJ5 with the crazy door openings and oddly shaped rear quarters. I'm pretty intent on finding some, and if I can't, I'll more than likely have some made locally.

Anyway, I've been searching for a few days now for some CJ5 armor threads and couldn't find any, so I figured I would post one here. If you have a link to some CJ5 compatable armor, post it here! Any type of armor at all, bumpers, cages, rockers, fenders, skid plates, anything!

I could be wrong but i'm pretty sure the cj7 fenders are the same for the cj5...

Grewe02 08-17-2010 03:24 PM

I think they might be as well, haven't swapped any parts myself so I didn't want to jump to a wrong answer. My main search right now is rear corners and rock sliders. But I figured listing it all couldn't hurt to someone else searching for some armor.

Jeepican 08-17-2010 03:27 PM

I do know they make diamond plating for the CJ5's

BESRK 08-17-2010 03:35 PM

Front Fenders are the same for the 72-later CJs.. both 5s and 7s.

Might not be too difficult to cut down a set of CJ7 Rock Sliders to fit a CJ5... worth looking into.

Pathkiller 08-17-2010 03:35 PM

CJ5 and CJ7 front fenders are identical.

Jeepican 08-17-2010 03:52 PM

Warrior does make rear corners and rocker in diamond plate....

Like BESRK said... 72 and later CJ5s are identical to CJ7s. Before that they were about 5" shorter.

BESRK makes great bumpers for CJs. He made both of mine.

He made my whole Jeep! ;)

Speaking of which, Eddie I'll make sure to send you some video of this thing bouncing off the rev limiter hopefully around March. I'm getting back to the states in November and giving myself 4 months to get it running.

Pathkiller 08-21-2010 09:22 AM

Cross Enterprises makes bumpers for Jeeps from 42 on up, including both early and late CJ5's. Blank

Off Your Rocker makes rocker and rear corner protection for early and late CJ5's: order

Grewe02 11-02-2010 10:26 AM

Thanks Brian! I couldn't find DND's rockers on their website, so I just listed their contact info in the link.

garretj64 11-02-2010 01:15 PM

What about comp cut corners? I know Genright and other companies make them for the CJ7, but I can never find any for the 5. :(

No problem. Thanks for making a thread, sure it will help out tons of people as 5 stuff seems harder to find.

He is there thread on the forum about TJ sliders, I just pmed them about ones for a 5 and they sent me a quote with shipping. http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f43/t...-logo-1067832/

I couldn't either. I got metalcloak corners and will be cutting them for a comp cut.

BESRK 11-02-2010 07:19 PM

Just added this thread to the CJ FAQ List :cheers2::thumbsup:

Grewe02 11-02-2010 08:07 PM

Eddie while you're at it, you should link me some of your work! For some reason the other side of the Earth doesn't load eBay

Edit: Does that link I have under bumpers cover all of your stuff?

Edit2: Thanks for adding it! :D

These guys should be included, they sell tube fenders that are mostly bolt on (no welding) for CJ5s for 200. I have had them for a year and love them. Right now their site is under construction, but you can see them in my build thread.

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/f22/c...16/index5.html

Grewe02 04-14-2011 11:27 PM

Send me a PM when their website is finished and I'll add it to post #2

Grewe02 05-02-2016 11:48 PM

Bump for updated links. Any more you guys can think of?
