First off welcome to the forum, secondly what's the exact question here? Lol you generally won't get much help with vague posts.

Lastly, the only conversion I'm aware off- without a lot of work- is to swap a CJ header panel on but you need the hood and fenders as well. Maybe someone else knows of something and will chime in

Most people will say DON'T DO IT. If you wanted a Jeep with round headlights you should have gotten one with round head lights. A YJ is a rare dog and holds a special place in YJ owners hearts.

Now, I do think the CJ swap is cool. It's what I would do if I was going to do it. But as mentioned, you need hood, fenders, hood. You could fab something up with just the grill if you had the skills.

I agree completely, I would not do it but if I were to I would swap out for a cj but those are getting rare as well. Least in my area they are

I agree with this 100%.

If you want round head lights sell your YJ to a TRUE YJ lover and go buy a TJ.

Round head lights SHEESH! Next thing he will ask is how to do a coil spring mod. Cause the YJ rides too rough.

Cool

I really like the YJ, never liked the square lights. If We all had the same likes and dislikes,We would all be driving the same damn vehicles! I swapped out My rectangles for round lights. I didn't replace the hood,grill or fenders.
I am running round composite headlights from a jeep Liberty. A little cutting with an angle grinder, they fit fine, and I have access to the adjustment screws to make sure they are always aimed correctly. Heck, if they were made, someone would gave triangle lights.It's Your Jeep, do what makes You happy!!
