What body parts from a CJ7 can I use as replacements for my CJ8?
A large number of CJ7 body parts are interchangeable with the longer wheelbase CJ8. All body panels forward of the firewall are the same including the windshield frame, and dashboard plate. After the firewall the front floor panel is also the same for both Jeeps, but this is were the similarities end. From the rear step-up back the bed of the CJ8 is 10” longer overall and has its own vehicle specific body panels. Please contact your retailer of choice for required OMIX-ADA part numbers.
