I posted photos of this process under What I did to my YJ this Week and Today

I hope I don't look my age...But did replace the hood latches with new ones and took off all three of those "Footman" loops and sanded and painted them. Maybe I should have plasti-dipped them?

I'm keeping with the square theme with all my mods. Square tubing for the bumpers I'm building square LED reverse lights. And square LED brake lights. Also planning on building square tubing nerf bars.

That was one of the things actually that attracted me to the AtoZ sliders I have because they are square.

I initially didn't care for the square headlight look. Then I saw one that was lifted, big tires, etc, and it just looked freakin' bad ass. Have liked them ever since. I like the round as well, but maybe I like being a bit on the unique side. Actually, I think it looks so good, because square headlights on a square body makes sense to me. I recently bought my first Jeep, and it's a 94 YJ. I love that it beats you half to death on every bump, yet rides nice down the highway. Have only had it a few weeks now, and I can't ever see getting rid of it. The wife and I have had a blast in it. Got one hell of a good deal on it too. Here's a few shots:

You must have an unlimited with a square head light conversion. 😆 There is no such thing as a yj riding nice on a highway. Every possible hole is magnified. That being said, I won't ever get rid of mine either.

Highways must be nicer here, haha. Just kidding, Illinois has the worst roads ever. I feel the bumps in the highway, but overall, not bad at all.

First to be fair i don't have a YJ yet. But i am definitely leaning toward the YJ for a couple reasons.
1. I hate electronic controls
2. I like simple and rugged
3. They look great
4. They still have a big enough engine bay for a V8 without doing major work.

I just got mine about 3 weeks ago. 94 with 4 cylinders and 5 speed. All the sheet metal has been fixed or replaced. the completely Rhino Lined. It need a few odds and ends, other wise it runs great. I work for a MB and Audi/VW dealership. The general lack of tech is refreshing.

Square Simplicity

I've always loved the square headlights. The dash had me hooked from first sight, and it has just the right amount of old school without going all the way back. All in all a very solid Jeep.

I remember as a kid, my old man would say "no REAL jeep should ever have square lights..." he was so excited when I picked mine up the other week and can't wait to go for a ride now 😝

When the Wrangler's first came out, I didn't mind the square headlights at all.
The only things I didn't like about them was that they seemed so low compared to the CJs in stock form and had tiny little tires. (Well those, no lockouts and that whole Chrysler thing...)

I'm going to show my age but I can relate to saying "No real Jeep should have square headlights." Fact is that I own one now and love the fact that it's so much like all my CJs. So much easier to work on than a TJ. I'd hate to think about working on a JK!!!!! I'm coming around to the look of square now and actually I think I'm liking it.

got a 95 YJ Rio Grande. Love that it's simple to work on but brother it ain't cheap for certain parts. $109.00 for the headlight dimmer switch!?!?!? Everything else I looked at is much cheaper though and I've learned new ways to apply 550 cord in order to solve small issues like missing handles, needing a pull strap on something, and giving the kids an emergency grab handle for when we go over a speed bump.

Try fixing something behind the dash or anywhere on the YJ and you'll see quickly why the YJ (and CJ) are the Jeeps to own. Simplicity ....and did I mention the cheap parts? As a previous TJ & CJ owner I admire the similarity to the CJ and the repairabilty over a TJ. ....did I mention I don't want to own a "Jeep" that came off the lot with plastic fenders? Is that for real?
