Cj Tilt wheel

Have a 77 cj5 need to put in a tilt wheel to go with my girlish frame. Would a tilt wheel out of a 82 cj7 work? I don't see why it wouldn't just thought I would get some opinions.

I have a 77 CJ5 and a 83 CJ7 both with tilt and they both look the same to me.

I don't mean to hijack a thread but, since the the subject was brought up, would a tilt column from a '79 Blazer fit in a '79 CJ-7?

I would rather have a tool I don't need, than need a tool I don't have.

I am not sure on the one out of the blazer. I really thought about doing the same thing. Then I thought what if something goes wrong then I have to remember what kind of column I used.

All of these columns are the same. Saginaw brand found in GM vehicles since the '60s. Should be plug-n-play from '60s through early '80s. Most parts are still available at your local parts store. There are a couple good threads on here on how to rebuild them. Good luck.

My 76 CJ5 needed a new tilt column and the original or rebuilt jeep columns on ebay were in the $400 range. I found one from an early 70s Grand Prix that had the correct spline on the shaft for about $150. It was dimensionally identical and the wiring plugged right in, ignition, turn signals etc work fine. The GP column came out of a column shifted car so the tube surrounding the shaft at the bottom end of the column was different, but I just swapped it out with my original one. The length from the firewall to the end of the shaft was the same on both columns. Columns with a double D on the end of the shaft instead of a spline are more common and can be used, you'll just have to change the u-joint.

Skerr there are differences in mounting flanges, lengths etc. All Saginaw columns aren't 100% the same.
