The best news I could find is it fits but you cannot open the tailgate once its closed w/o crawling through the jeep to the back from the inside unless you mod the tailgate latch. Or swich the tailgate to a YJ. Well once I am ready to put the top on for the winter I will see how it goes. My full doors match with rounded corners so I think I am ok this winter. I might have the whole thing apart over the winter if I get axles and/or a tub anyway by then.

I was thinking about replacing my tan half door interior and grey full door interior panels to black panels and getting a black dash.

Then I found this link to dyeing panels, seats and dashes: http://www.freshalloy.com/forums/arc.../t-105741.html

Seemed very economical and easy to do thought I might try it first.

Here are the links to SEM products to do this with:

I have tried dyeing panels before, they always wear through.

You can't close and latch it either, without 2 people. 1 to push from the outside, while the other goes inside and latches the tailgate.

Yeah the guy told me it would specifically fit a 1980 CJ-7 which technically it does but he took advantage of my ignorance. The good news is I didn't pay much for it so I'll try to mod it (put a latch on the top's hatch to open and close it and fit it properly (with a seal) for the latch to work) after I replace my tub (gotta figure out which one first) and if I fail then I'll by a real CJ-7 one.

I might try them on mine and if it fails I just can't sell those I would have to buy black ones anyway. I watched a youtube of a guy dyeing black ones to white it looked incredible when it was done but like you said it prolly doesn't last.

Join the Club Charlie. You still have a way to go to catch up to me!!

And don't be too concerned about the top. If it doesn't work out you will be able to sell it. If you can, set it up there and find out for sure. Two people can do it easily.

But the right word at the right time... "Hey, give me a little hug!" That's the difference between lightning and a harmless lightning bug!

I hear ya! For sure worse case I use it as is one winter and I only paid like ~$224 so that's cheap enough.

So I need help. I have the opportunity to buy the following:

Front Dana 44 TTB axle
Rear 9 inch (10 bolt) Ford rear axle

The axles are from a '96 F-150 4wd

First off will they fit my CJ-7 and if so are the mods small, medium, or large?

I assume these are wide track axles (I want wide track)?

And how much would you pay the guy left it to me to make an offer.

So far I found one article online that says no to the Dana 44 TTB axle.

TJ (TJ78 forum name) was nice enough to deliver these beauties to me in Indy for $20 on his way to take his daughter to IU for a visit. A big shout out to TJ! Thank you very much these were sorely needed by me after I paint my wheels black they will look awesome.
