    Looking for a DJ5A left hand door latch. This is the paddle latch like the later model had on the rear doors and not the metal handle that twists. I need the one that bolts on with protective guard handle.

    I have (2) 1970 DJ5A, one warranty expires Feb 1972 and has latch recess that is riveted to the door. The other warranty expires April 1972 and the latch assembly bolts through the door and has a protective guard that is part of the assembly.

    if you have a closer view it might help. I think this paddle latch is unique to this truck. Postaljeep.net may have one if you call.

    Sometimes this is called a teardrop paddle latch if like the one in the foto. I you need a square or rectangular you might check Amazon.
