    Does anybody know when CJ windshield frames switched from having a smooth front surface, to having 2 horizontal ribs across the front at the wiper hole location and just below that?

    Not sure exactly what you mean, both my '80 and '84 are smooth, no ribs.

          So, Jacksons' '79 has ribs, but Hill, Bill E.s' 80 and 84 don't. Hmmm... must have just been a random thing. The reason I ask, is that I bought a used CJ frame on ebay. When I went to pick it up, it had the ribs. I asked the guy if it was aftermarket, and he said "no, some of the later CJ's had ribs".
          I was just wondering when that all started. The ribs were probably added to give more strength, allowing the use of thinner metal.

            Sorry I am at a loss here as I cannot for sure say I have seen an original windshield from the later years. I am sure my 79 CJ-7 did not have ribs. The one I put on my 79 CJ-5 didn't either and that supposedly came from an 82. I had an 84 that also had no rib but that was rebuilt so I cannot say for fact that it was original.
