Those hoods are the same. The only difference is the bar across the front on the upper one.
From a search:
The later hoods have a flatter angle over the grille and are kinda thinner at the center. The proper hood has a constant thickness over the grille and the corners wrap around it.
Some don't notice or care about the difference but it bugged me enough that I sold the grille I had saved.
There's a guy in the Vendor section selling fiberglass copies of the Rhino. CJ-7 headlights work.
I don't know why your hood hits the AC. Maybe wrong motor mounts? Been near 20 years since mine had the stock motor.
