I'm pretty sure that a "newer" CJ5 tailgate will be same size (after 76).
But remember that if you swap to a fold down tailgate, not only will you need to do some fabrication, but you've lost the ability to easily open your tailgate. There was a reason why they changed to side opening gates. Your life will be a lot easier if you get a YJ gate. There have to be a few around in junkyards.

|CaptLee||i heard or read some where a CJ7 tailgate will work and that all you need to order or find is the hinges and the locking plates for the hooks. heck it might of been in 4wd or quad catalog. i read so many of them. I am thinking about it when I repaint mine in the near future. The gate in the catalog is around 156.00|

|rogertc1||I got a replacement YJ gate for mine at a junk yard for $50 after I backed into a fence. I Even cracked the old gate. Repinted it and hung it. Had very little rust at the bottom. Left the tire off.|

|CMEvans79||I would contact the person you are supposed to get it from so that you can get a hold of it ... and install it ... I HATE it when inanimate, permanent objects jump out in front of or behind me!|

|ENIX89YJ||will do i have to get ahold of the guy to arrange to pick it up... the reason i am needing a new one is because a telephone pole jumped in my blind spot and i was backing up and boom.... it hit the spare tire and dented the tailgate in.... i was sooo aggravated at that stupid pole... couldn't it see i was backing up??.. lol.. welp live and learn|

it woulf require a bit of modification. the cj tailgate and the yj tailgate are very different in the way they open.
the cj tailgate opens down like the tailgate on a pick up, where the yj opens out.
