conversion possibility?

Was wondering if it was possible to put the Hood, fender's , and grill of a JK on to a YJ?

Also how much fabrication would be involved?

Anyone ever attempt?

Probably not but if you want to it would require A LOT of fab work, not worth it in my opinion. Plus the look of the YJ is a lot cooler than the new jks

i think you can put TJ stuff on it easier its still round eye but the hoods are a lot smaller or not as tall i think but hell I am not a fabricator ...

Easy,

1: Take top off YJ
1.5: Drink some beer.
2. Take back seat out of YJ.
2.5: More beer.
3. As hard as you can shove all JK body parts into YJ.
3.5: Beer?
4. Plan two, More beer and lotsa tie wraps, duct tape, jb liquid weld, and self tapping screws. Oh yeah, More beer!
