ok so i found the perfect jeep for my budjet build
its deffinatly an older jeep but i dont know which
i doubt its a cj7
its got round headlights that go into the grill cutout
larger gap between the windshield and hood
has the JEEP imprint on the tailgate
the roll cage is angled down with no support going across the cab to the windshield, like a yj
circle taillights
the guy selling it has no clue what it is or what year it is
i guess a few years ago he was fixing it for a customer
and a rockwall fell on the back, so he had to buy it off the customer
its been sitting in the woods for awhile but looks like its in decent shape
the rear fenders are pretty much junk now so im thinking of chopping the rear end off.
but any ideas what year it might be could help
and if you need pictures i might be able to score those later this week

if the front fenders are rounded its a cj5 or 7 flat fenders are a cj-2 or 3. now if it has rounded fenders and the gas tank is under the driver its a cj5, if the tank is at the rear its a 7.

Pictures would be great. I garauntee we can figure it out from pics. But you described the things that were common to every jeep pre-dating a YJ pretty much.

you can tell between the cj-7 and the cj-5 by the doors also. the 5 will have a S type curve in the door, and the 7 will have a more U shaped door. HTH
