    All, I am looking for reference photos that show the original placement of the Jeep and other logos on the back tailgate. The stencils are available today so, I wanted to add this to my resto.

    Thanks for any help.

    All you need is on this page.
    Thanks to the CJ3B page and its very detailed and well organized information, as well as including information for all Jeeps.

    Special care needs to be used when talking 1970 CJ5. the model years started in September or October of 1969 and AMC took over in Feb 1970.
    Many changes were made in that year and when they were made is hard to pin point.
    The full jeep pictured above is a mid to late, gas tank in the back and not under the seat.
    JEEP stamped and painted on center of tailgate. Early was blank.
    Also on mid to late 1970 versions the front fender marker "lights" are setup in the fender.
    Early 1970s had a "reflector" on the hood.
    Both early and late 1970s had the same tail lights, as far as I know.
    the red rear box, possibly a factory extension add on, is from pre Kaiser vintage Willys.

    what is the build date on your early?
    this will help understand where the line is.

    (sorry I forgot to add the links that Panzer put in)

    jpc, I am not sure but, it definitely has the hood mounted reflectors as well as the small centered raised section in the tailgate. One of the photos. on the second link that panzer provided could be my tailgate but, mine is nicer.

    This is my Jeep,
    Do you still have the sticker on the dash?
    It should give the build date.
    If not the vin will tell the build date.

    No sticker on the dash. I will check the VIN.
