Tailgate dimensions

Does anyone know the dimensions of a tailgate for a 5 vs. a 7? I'm in the middle of some tub work on a 79 cj5 with no tailgate. It will have a tailgate when all is done. I just don't know which tailgate.

I think the one for the 7 is more narrow. The height is also a concern. The 7 mounts flush and the 5 mounts on the surface. I was curios about actual dimensions for the placement of the tail light panels.
