I was a CJ guy for 30 years and despised a YJ the whole time. I kept the parts for a year to do the grill swap but finally sold them. Now I can't imagine why anyone would switch.

I guess the YJ is an aquired taste...
you either love em,
hate em,
or love and hate em.

I have to say i love my yj to death but there still are things that i like and dislike about it. I like the interior better then anyother jeep out there its not to rugged but it doesnt look like a sissy jeep on the inside. I love the leaf springs i think that they are unique in a way i dont say many other cars around this time frame with leaf springs front and back. But im not saying i hate the square head lights I like them but dont love them like i love every other part of the yj. But i do love the CJ front end and dont really care for tjs or jks anyways. I plan on finding a CJ nose clip and frame mounts for the grill on craislist and doing the swap. Heres the link on how to do it if anyone is curious Turn Your YJ Into A CJ - Jp Magazine

Dear God, people. They're just headlights. That's it. He's not suggesting on doing a complete Hummer H2 body swap. I think square headlights look like shit. But I like Jeep YJs and I'm in the process of trying to buy one RIGHT NOW. Figure that one out? Because they're JUST FREAKIN' HEADLIGHTS. It's time, people, to let it go. It's been over ten years since the round headlights made a comeback. Step back. Take a deep breath. Enjoy your YJs, but leave the headlight drama in the past.

The Huey Lewis and the News song "Its hip to be square" came out in '87... and what year did the YJ come out?,... 1987! cowincedence I think not! But a nice CJ conversion done right looks great aswell.

One serious question:

Is there any difference between the light output and beam patterns of a square/rectangular headlight than a round one? based one sealed bulbs versus a two piece headlamp.

Round lights are more efficient at reflecting light than square because the corners of a square lamp are not reflecting at an optimal angle. That seeing crap is overrated. It's much cooler with the square lights.

i own a YJ and i love it. i have no intention of going round, but if i do im going with a CJ hood, grill, and tube fenders, cuz CJ's are sexy. (like sean connery, still sexy but too old to do much with them)

i personally think the OP did a great job with the graft considering he put two different grills together and you cant even tell... that being said id rather have the cj hood with it if i get rounds...

oh and this arguement will go on forever because all the TJ guys make fun of the YJ's so the YJ guys turn it around for the better and make it into a possitive thing instead of an insult... classic.
