I want to replace my rear windows on my 81 CJ5. however, bestop only shows tinted replacement windows for the CJ7. I sure that the rear window will be the same but, what about the side windows. I relies that the 7 has a longer front seat area but, what about the rear section? Is it longer to and why doesn't bestop make tinted replacement windows for the cj5?

Heaven knows why Bestop does anything.
Check out your local trim shop, they can replace the windows with whatever you want.

Sorry, one of those places that does Auto Upholstery. seat covers and such, they do convertible windows all the time.

I backed down a sand dune last week end and into a tree. it poked a small hole in my year old rear window. I guess I should just patch the hole and forget about it. Another month and the soft top goes into storage and the bikini is on for the summer.
