75 junk CJ5, SB Ford conversion. Should have never started on this rebuild, but did so must continue. Truing to build parts, not buy but it's still costly.

Welcome aboard from Va!!

I also did my build as cheaply as possible...... employed the “straighten and repaint” ploy many times. And many trips to the pick-n-save yard as well. Watch Craigslist. And Facebook marketplace if you can stomach it....

Welcome!

Ask. Learn from other people’s mistakes. Have a good idea of your rig’s main use. My personal one: Don’t be afraid of modern touches on your CJ like fuel injection and drivetrains. These are attainable even on a tight budget. Good luck!

Thanks guys for the replies. Good to know others are having similar issues.

I do have a question that needs an answer. I need a windshield frame, 75 are so high but 76"s are more resealable. I'm fairly sure the 76 will fit? Does anyone know what is needed to do the conversion?

Thanks in advance. Going to be in the 80's hear today, I think a bike road trip is in order!

The 75’s has the wiper motor mounted on the outside of the windshield frame, then ‘76 on had it mounted to the inside. I have never compared the two, but I would think at most you would need a new w’shield frame, wiper motor, and wiper linkage. It’s possible with the newer w’shield frame, everything else would bolt up, but you’d have to compare. Look up replacement wiper motors for both years and see if they spec the same part number.

Several differences but will work but the angle and width are the main problems. You will need a 76 and up top and doors. Windshield wiper and hardware is different as well as wiper switch. Not hard to change if you get a used frame with every thing attached.

thanks for all the reply's I now have an idea what to do. It's so hard when you work with a fixed income, I have time now but not so much money. When i was younger I would get money for a project, build it sell it pay off the loan and pocket the money left. So much for the "good old days"
