Grille TJ -> YJ

Hey guys,
I've always wanted a Jurassic Park Jeep and trying to get your hands on a YJ in Australia is near on impossible, so i recently boughta 1998 TJ, i was wondering if it would be possibe to swap out the Grille on a TJ for a YJ. also does anyone know if YJ fenders and flares would fit a TJ.
any info, links, pictures etc. would be great

That's a switch, Don't take this wrong but, most switch away from the YJ grille and lights. Good luck where's there a will there's a way!

Wow I never thought I'd read this post. But back to your question, I believe you would need the yj fenders. Yj fender turn signals look diffrent so youll need that.

If you just want the square headlights find a spare tj grill and a spare yj grill. Do some fabricating and mate the 2 so you don't have to change the hood, fenders, etc.

X2 on that. That would be much cheaper and seem like gravy work versus swapping out your whole front end.

Nothing else check eBay for a grille you can get one on there at a decent price shipped. Every now and again one will slip away really cheap.

Squares are better, really...if there is a way to do it affordably you should definitely follow through.
