Gehrig I've thought about putting a CJ doghouse on my YJ if I could find one. I like your grille and it is the right color....can I borrow it?

markharmon Just starting my conversion to CJ grill. Found had to cut 3/4" from height. Notch for power steering. Cut about 3" from back where radiator mounts. CJ grill will bolt to original YJ mount on crossmember. I'm converting to tube fenders that I'm building. Using YJ inner fenders.

lavern23 Jchango, we can always paint it if you want to pull it out.

Jayscott13, thanks for the kind words. You got the intent of my original post. I never intended to make any more than the one we did for my friends jeep. I would have never thought I would be working on number 17 right now and that it will be headed to Norway.

You jeep looks good by the way.

Jayscott13 Lavern23, I think it's awesome to step out and do something that's makes ones rig unique. I have read all the post and feel that some of them miss the point of your original post. What I got from it was you were proud of the time and energy you spent on an idea you came up with and wanted to show what could be done with a little time and energy. Post like this are great to look at to maybe spark up someone's own creativity to come up with other ideas to make their jeep stand out a little from all the others. Keep up the good work and if you come up with anymore ideas please post them. I look at pics of everyone's jeeps on here to get ideas for mine, but try to put my own twist on them to make it my own. I love being able to "stick out my chest" when talking to people about my jeep and the work I've put into it. I think that's what makes a jeeper, regardless of what model, unique people. I've only had mine for less than a year but here is the difference from then to now.

Rubi513 YJs look so much better with round headlights
08-09-2013 12:08 AM
skinnywateryj I just like the fact that its different....there's a bunch of YJ's here in my town & I honestly just want something different than anybody else's rig. My question is I was told the other day that the JK headlight can will fit in the CJ grills....it was said that they are the same diameter.

Is this true?....because if so I definitely like the sound of this conversion in order to get some way better quality headlight cans with HID's for better visability.

Acidhouse I like it. If I had the spare change it's something that I would definitely consider. I'm not ashamed of the YJ rectangles, I think they look good but I like the round headlights better.

Your $50.00 grill looks at home on your "piece".
I'd disagree with his rig being a "piece"...just saying. But everyone has their own opinions on things...some may like your fab work..some may not. Its a free country to think what you want. I think the protrusion of the lights is kinda ugly and the lights do seem a little close. But good work nonetheless!

well done guys!
what is the price on those grills?
I would honestly eat a bullet if my jeep looked like this. But it's not my jeep now is it?

My grill is not for sale. It's such a pain in the ass, and it's not even done. I've decided i wasn't happy with the headlight angle so i'm doing a bit more cutting and welding.
05-01-2013 11:13 AM
kammokid i had also seen this one on ebay way back when...
not sure of the price though..

If you did care about a person with "downs", you wouldn't use them in such a description to be derogatory.
If it didnt bother you, then why did you PM me and then post what you PMed?

Reguardless... I am glad, as well as the others, that you are happy with the finished product you made. Save your banter for someone else.

Edit....You've missed it Norcal_Chris. The banter was about you being an asshat and disrespecting downs-syndrome and those involved with it.

I sure do. Thanks for your concern. And way to be a big guy and throwing the sly "insult" in there.


Edit: just realized you were the one that posted the conversion you made. Guess thats why you are butthurt.
