DJ5 mail jeep
After finding this forum,I have become motivated to finish a project I started several years ago.You see,I am a rural mail carrier,and I bought this as an actual work piece.I knew then if I didn't get it the way I wanted it,then I would just drive it to death (like I did the '76 I had).I rebuilt the motor,got the body ready to paint and then quit!

I saw some pics of dj's and that has got me wanting my jeep up and running.Not as a work horse ,but as a geta round town buggy.Retirement ain't too far away.One of the pics I saw was of a dj with the top cut,I like that idea.I think that may be a piece of work though.

If anyone has ideas or pics of thier dj's,and if you don't mind,share them with me.Especially on how to remove the top.

Also if anyone local (Clarksville/Ft.Campbell area) would like to join in on this endeaver,you are more than welcome.

My mind is not totally made up on how I wish to proceed with this.But I do intend to finish this spring and summer.

Thanks to all....Will

I love the look of these postals, and I say keep the room, because it will be work trying to get a roof back on it.

Gone Postal myself!
Hi! I recently started my own DJ5 project. I've seen the service manuals on eBay a LOT. That may help with your wiring problems. By the way, take a good close look at your posted picture and the side of a real CJ5. Most people who take the lid off the DJ5 do so at the rib just below the glass, and that's WAY too tall. I took the sides down to 20" above the bottom of the door frame (be careful NOT to measure from the rear, it's a different height). This is a great little rig, hope you have fun with it!

Help! 76 dj5d postal jeep with soft top & left hand side drive restored by safari kar
Need help! Soft top 1976 dj5d

postal jeep -with soft top???

I have a 1976 dj5d.
Restored by safari kar a company no longer in business.
The problem is i need a new soft top.
Well dj5d jeep`s weren`t built with soft tops! :)
so i am trying to find a soft top that is similiar in size enough to buy.
The jeep is really nice and professionally restored by safari kar... The steering was changed from right sided to the left side. It has a soft top produced by kayline ,but kayline is also no longer in business. The title reads it as a 1996 dj which i found odd. However after researching i found this is what safari kar did the restored it completely & then change the yr on title before reselling it.
It only has 20k miles...automatic & no swing open door or sliding doors the doors are soft doors.. It also does not have three back lights like you see on all dj`s it has back light`s as if it was a cj or dj....

My question is if i buy a cj5 soft top will it be close enough in size to fit? Thank you i will add pics soon... It`s bumpy but runs perfect
