After thinking about it for a while, we came up with a Jeep CJ 5 hardtop design to incorporate the soft half door and the full door. So now you will have both door options. The full doors will be coming along soon. The keyed lock has been installed and we added a storage compartment to the lower part of the door.

We started on the hardtop this week. We got a Acme top and doors. First we need to square up the hardtop, redesign the windows, rear door and door openings. I got a set of 2 piece Bestop soft doors and put them on with the hardtop. No way for them to work. So we will concentrate on making a hardtop and a full fiberglass door. Iʼll give you an update in a few weeks.

Happy Trails,

We got us a CJ5! Itʼs a 1981 with a 350 Chevy automatic in it. Itʼs a real screamer. Lots of fun to drive.

Rally Tops is going to produce a hardtop for the Jeep CJ5ʼs. We are going to start with the Generation 2 model (1976-1983). I need your feedback about this. I get about 10-15 CJ5 guys hitting the site everyday looking for a hardtop. The hardtop is no problem, we have been producing our own hardtops since 1985. The question that I am posing to you is about the doors. As it stands now, Iʼm leaning towards using the Bestop® 2 piece soft door. It can be used as a full door or a half door. It comes complete with the hinges and the latching mechanism. Please call me or email me, with your thoughts, so that we can make the right product for this Great American Legend.

Introduced in 1954 by the Kaiser Corporation, the CJ-5 was based on the Korean War model M-38A1. Nearly 30 years in production, the CJ-5 model outlasted all other Jeep production runs by a comfortable margin. Many Jeep special editions were made over the years. They include The Tuxedo Park, The Camper, The 462, The Renegade 1, The Renegade 2, The Super Jeep and The Golden Eagle.

In 1970, Kaiser Jeep was purchased by American Motors Corporation. The following years, AMC began using their inline 6 cylinder engines and in 1972 they offered a V-8. To accomodate the new engines, the hood was stretched 3". In 1976, the tub and frame were modified slightly from the earlier versions. The windshield frame was also changed, meaning that tops from 1955-1975 will not fit the 1976-1983 Jeep CJ-5s or vice versa.
