This in no way, shape, or form is me trashing a CJ. Just stating the facts.

Glad to hear you aren't bashing my teeth-jarring, tight fittin, but very cool looking CJ

Umm reread this.
If he put YJ fenders on a cj useing the cj grill you can do the reverse.

Michael Ferrari Thanks for your help, guys. I knew that I would take a beating. I hate to have to change the entire front end. I was hoping a CJ grill could fit in a little easier than what everyone is saying.

Yea...that red Jeep from North Carolina if I remember correctly. I haven't seen him on here in a while.

whiteyj While you're at it, change the shifter to that plastic thing and add some air bags!
03-08-2006 11:17 PM
amerijeep Probably want to do a leaf to coil conversion, too. I have a buddy down the street with a TJ. His horn is about half an octave higher in pitch than my YJ. Better do a horn conversion while your at it.

naviathan I think the squares look better anyhow. They have a mean look from the front.
03-08-2006 10:38 AM
whiteyj Jeep owners are a different breed anyway. We YJ owners are are quite comfortable with our "squareness".

With all the other mods and toys to spend your hard earned dollars on why screw around with perfectly good headlights!
03-08-2006 09:11 AM
SouthTJ Hey, Michael, don't let them fool you into thinking that it's hip to be square. They're just jealous.

I agree. I don't understand the point either. Sounds dumb to spend lots of money to change something that you should be proud of anyway.
03-07-2006 07:20 PM
yjswampthing What I want to know is, whats so bad about square headlights!? CJs are too narrow in the grill and TJs are everywhere. Theres a place for those square headlights in the jeep world. Idk. I guess its my opinion, but theres other things to worry about on your jeep besides the headlights

Actually, a lot of guys use YJ tubs when they replace them on their CJ's. With a little drilling and some minor trimming, you can have a CJ front on your YJ...

Por Que?

I drive a TJ...

Over the years I have seen a lot of Rigs and I don't recal ever seeinig Rounds on a YJ. I'm not saying it can't be done but I have never seen anyone do this.

It's okay to have two Jeeps. YJs Play well wiht TJs.

Ask any Jeeper and they will all tell you the same thing, "I wish I had never sold my first Jeep"... no matter what a big heap it was.

It kills me to not still have my CJ-8 if I ever run across that old Jeep again I will buy it back.

naviathan Get the front fenders, hood and grill from a CJ and just swap it out.

square to round headlights

Does anyone know if there is a way to convert the headlights on the YJ from round to square. I guess that OMIX-ADA is not going to sell the conversion kit. I hate to sell out, but I really do like the round headlights better and can not afford a TJ and CJ's are too old.
