Steve1973,

i undestand your point o view, but here in Brazil we have a lot of cj5 some cj6 a few yj , some tj and newer, but the price is very high from the new one, some cj5 in good condition is similar from a tj price ( wiht the same money i can buy 2 or 3 jeeps in usa...) it is very expansive and hard to find some parts from these cars. in the junkyards is hard to find somehing, import is another solution but it is not cheap, for example i need to take the price of these patr i need , plus the shipping and add 65 per cent from the total from both (tribute for the goverment) 0_o , is very expensive to have import or some car models here... convert 155,0000.00 reais for usa dollar , it is the price of the 2012 new camaro here (basic model) 6 or 7 x the price in usa... our reality is very different unfortetly.

thaks for all

Márcio Lima

CJ 5 is more like the way a Jeep was met to be and a lot cooler, the CJ 7 is more of a luxury vehicle like an Explorer or Blazer. Of course that's just my opinion.

Seriously? Did you read the thread?

(it's a 5, by the way)

What does your title say?

That would be the long wheelbase CJ5.

CJ7 had full doors.
The short wheelbase CJ5 lost 3" behind the front wheel well.

If your state has laws making it illegal to "remove" doors. The CJ5 is the last Jeep which can legally run without doors since it was built without doors.

But I agree with Hoss... read the thread !!

And sweet CJ.

C'mon, this revive of a 12 year old thread MUST have been just to yank our collective chains! THAT CJ-5 for $1500? Maybe it's just a trick of the picture, but aside from the lack-of-a-front-bumber, that sure looks like $4000 in my neck of the woods. Unless it's a complete piece under the skins...

Here's a basic demonstration of the door opening difference between a 5 and a 7.
