    Does someone have a picture of what the wiper knob should look like on a 1970 CJ5? The silver knob on mine seems out of place.

    My '70 cj5 wiper knob looks like this. No guarantee, of course, whether it's original or not on a vehicle this old. I just noticed the window spray icon on the knob. No way does my jeep still have any mechanism remaining to spray wiper fluid. :cry:

    This is what the wiper knob looks like in both my '69 and '71. I'm guessing a '70 is the same:

    This is what I would expect on a '70.

    Any ideas on where I can find replacement wiper and hazard knobs like the wiper one pictured above.

    I've found the "Lights" one all over, but not these two.

    Does the headlight knob have the same thread as the wiper?

    I bought one of those knobs from this guy several years ago...he runs a parts house for Postal Jeeps, which shared the same wiper knob. You might check with him and see if he still has any in stock:

    Gary Pounds <gary.pounds@icloud.com>, or postaljeepheaven@yahoo.com .

    They appear the same. I've not actually screwed the lights one onto the wiper. The thought never waded through my mind.
