If I understand correctly the CJ7 tub is 10" longer than the CJ5 tub, so NO.

What they said above. CJ7's are longer than CJ5's.
CJ5's have the "S" door cutouts, the CJ7's are square.

1978 CJ-5, 304 V-8, T-150 trans, Dana 20 x-fer case, AMC 20 rear, Dana 30 front. Painless wiring kit,
fenderwell headers - dual exahaust, side exit. Still mostly stock (for now).
