Jeep CJ5 Hardtop 1-Piece Removable Top and Full Doors for Late Model (1976-1983)


(4 customer reviews)

The Jeep CJ5 model is a small open-bodied, tough as nails  off-road truck that will take you anywhere you want to go.

The problem is they could be loud and difficult to be in for long trips. The tops frequently leaked and wore out. If you have a soft top you know what we mean. The ravages of the environment, off roading, sun, rain and time take it’s toll.

We have created brand new tops that perfectly match the specs of the old CJ5’s so now you can use your old trusty Jeep with a brand new hardtop.

Check them out, we think you will love the fit and finish of these CJ5 fiberglass hardtops.

Product Features

  • Highest Quality Textured Exterior Finish
    Our hardtops are painted with a single stage UV resistant paint. Black is our standard color. White and Tan are optional at an additional charge.

  • Safety Glass
    The side windows and rear hatch are DOT Approved tempered safety glass.

  • Tinted Glass
    The hardtop windows and rear hatch are tinted 31% to the maximum allowable by law.

  • Fully Carpeted
    The inside of our tops are finished in a mildew resistant gray carpet. This not only looks great, but it helps keep the road noise out.

  • Reduced Road and Wind Noises
    Our use of “Weather Guard” drastically cuts the interior noise level. You can carry on a conversation without raising your voice. Your sound systems will sound better.

  • Weather Insulated
    Our use of “Weather Guard” also insulates the interior from the outside elements. Your air conditioners and heaters will be much more efficient.

  • Rear Hatch Opens with Dual Gas Struts
    Your rear hatch will come up with a flick of the wrist, by extra strong gas props. They are guaranteed to keep your rear hatch up, even during off-roading.

The Jeep CJ5 was introduced in 1954 by the Kaiser Corporation, and the CJ-5 was based on the Korean War model M-38A1.

With 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 (AMC).

The following years, AMC began using their inline 6 cylinder engines and in 1972 they offered a more powerful V-8 which we just loved. To accommodate the new larger engines, the hood was stretched 3″.

In 1976, the tub and frame were modified slightly from the earlier versions. This proves to be crucial for you, as you will see below.

The windshield frame was also changed, meaning that tops from 1955-1975 will not fit the 1976-1983 Jeep CJ-5s or vice versa.

So, it’s very important to open the box up, take your time to look inside and if it’s in good condition, sign for it. If the CJ5 top is damaged, don’t sign for it. Refuse the shipment and call us at (800) 664-8677.

  1. Chuck Hill (verified owner)

    I have a 1980 Jeep CJ5, it has a mildly modified 350 Chevy with a 4 speed transmission.

    The top really changed the appearance of this thing. I am super happy with the top. It went on fairly easy with a few adjustments here and there.

    Have had a lot of compliments already. Keep up the good work.

    Thanks very satisfied customer, Chuck Hill

  2. Jeremy Graff

    This message is for Jerry. Talked to you yesterday on the phone. Love the top and doors. Here are some photos of my 1978 Jeep CJ5. Thanks!

  3. Darren Skelton (verified owner)

    It fit my ’79 CJ very well. Extremely pleased with my new top!

  4. Wesley Loughran (verified owner)

    Thank you for helping me with my Jeep CJ5 cam lock. I was able to get it installed and attached the visor holds in the roof. The top install worked perfectly.

    I have attached a few pictures of my Jeep with the new top on. It turned out great!
