Cj5 is shorter than CJ7. Door opening also diferent. If door openingfollows rear fenderwell with curve to rear of opening then its a 5 or earlier. If door opening is straight down then 90 degree radius toward front of door, its a 7 or later. Hope this helps
Look at pic of door openings. This is true with all cjs
Well it all depends on the year. (standard vins were not made yet) Vins are located in a couple spots. The engine bay and on the dash. Use this: http://www.goldenhawkjeep.com/cj%20identification.html Now, if you JUST want to know if its a 5 or 7 - look at the door openings like previous people have said. Also look at the length, CJ7's sit at just above 7' long. Doors are the biggest sign though.
sorry... to fix myself, the cj7 WHEELBASE is above 7' (roughly around 7.7') and a CJ5 (after '72) is 7' and before '72 is a tad bit shorter
