Different year Cj5 door difference
Would hard doors from a 1970 cj5 fit on a 1977 cj5 or did they change something
they changed the body a fair amount around 1971-72 so amc could fit in their 6 cylinder engines and get a little more room inside with the cj7 models. the angle of the windshield changed for sure and the early cj doors won't work. you would have to get an early cj windshield and mount it on your '77 to make them work. too expensive really and there are lots more later model cj's around than the early ones.
1966 CJ5A, mods are coming
1966 Wagoneer, bone stock
Apart from the angle difference, the later CJ5 hardtops needed adapter plates since the windshield was also narrower on the top. If this is a Meyer top, it also uses unique door hinges, and assorted other parts. Whatever you find, make sure you get more then just the doors.

1976, the windshield was angled back more, so 76-up top & doors are different.
