What YJ parts would you buy if they were available?

I know there's pretty much everything under the sun available for TJ's and JK's...but what about us YJ folks? I'm thinking about making some YJ specific parts to sell and wanted opinions on what people would buy. I was thinking about some badass rock sliders to start....any ideas?

I'd like a nice strong belly up skid. I've been thinking about the direction I'm taking my Jeep build and it is not gonna get much more than a 4" lift so I'd like to get as much under carriage clearance as possible.

Some sweet sliders would be cool too.

I would like to see a heavy duty tie rod set. Currie no longer makes them for the YJ and I have not heard a lot of good about Rugged Ridge.

Rock sliders would be nice. A nice stinger front bumper with supports going to the frame so it can hold up if it needs to be used for its actually purpose with a winch mount d-ring shackles for tow points and light tabs.

Another one would be a cj front end conversion kit thats bolt on no welding required but thats a tuff one. I'd buy it if it was out there though.

There's not any welding that I know of to put a CJ clip on...I am fixing to do that myself.

I had thought about the bumpers, but TJ fronts will fit a YJ so that's a hard market to get into. I wanna make something that isn't out there for YJ's

I always thought that the mounts for the grill on the frame had to be cut off and welded on an inch and a quarter lower. And plus you'd still have to mount the radiator to the grill but then again I can't imagine that being to hard. And I haven't seen any stingers that look good and have good supports either. Just a thought.

There's only one mount on the grill, and I would think a body puck could take care of that. My neighbor just put a YJ tub on his CJ frame and use the front CJ clip without any welding.

I've also heard that you can get a 1.25 inch bodylift and just leave the spacer out for the grill and it would even out. I don't know maybe I just got to get my hands dirty to figure out how to do it.

If it's a good kit, I'd definitely pay up for it.
