Sketch Up YJ Model

Here is a SketchUp YJ model I found. All appears to be accurately to scale. If anyone sees anything is not please let me know. I did not make this model, but it is open source free. You can change it to make it yours. It is great for any modifications, especially fabrication. If you make a bumper carrier on the back of it for example it will scale all of the components you need to size. You can then convert that to weight and quotes items for parts. It will let you know if you need 8' or 12' of steel tubing for example.

You can also strip everything off of this Jeep and make it just the tub or just the hood or any other part you are working on. You can take the doors off, the top off, all kinds of stuff.

On a side note. Anyone not familiar with SketchUp that fabricates stuff should look at this program. It is free CAD software from Google and has been around for years. There are all kinds of models and parts you can download including a YJ cage. I think I am going to build the you see pictured below. Another perfect example of being able to convert something into how much tubing you need and how it will weight and look before you do anything. .

Best part is if I dont know how to do something in the software and just Google it the answer comes right up. You only need to pay for it if you are going to do commercial use.

I took some screenshot of stuff I am working on right now and provided some links. I cant upload the actual files, but you get the jist. You could also do things like take the cage from one file and put it on the Jeep in the other file.

Hope someone finds this usefull.

That's a very cool set up. wish I woulda had this for all of my previous custom mods.

But, DUDE! You know them are not YJ wipers...lol. Somebody snuck in some of those fancy TJ, lay at the bottom of the windshield wipers there!

Seems like a really well designed cage. A little living up to your name (overkill) but should be strong incase you get stupid.

The stuff removed and things like the tailgate and stock tire and carrier I did. That is just a pic of the one I am working with after making changes to one of the ones in the link I provided. I have a 3/16" thick 60" 4"x3" square tubing I am going to make a tire carrier bumper out of.

I welded a hinge for it with a dana 30 used hub I had laying around to a piece of 3/16" plate (not finished welding it in the pic) and need to know how much metal and stuff to buy besides what I have on hand. I havent welded it to the base yet so this software will go a long way in making my life easier. I also want the exact angles so it all lines up and doesn't block a tail light or anything.

The files are the complete vehicles you can tear down.
