Will YJ parts fit a TJ?
 
I have a 2000 TJ that I am building but I need some body parts. What interchanges with a TJ and a YJ? I need a windshield frame, both front fenders, hood, grille, and radiator support. I have noticed that TJ body parts are a little more hard to come by than YJ body parts.

Everything from a YJ will require some measure of fabrication to fit a TJ (some more than others). They really completely redesigned the body in 1997, and the parts made before that are not interchangeable with TJs.

Anything can be made to work, but the effort probably won't justify the price savings. Also, gonna have that hole square head light thing to deal with

Thanks for the info jeeperman. I wasnt sure how alike the parts were. I know I can make them work but I'm like you myanarchy, I would rather not hassle with it just to save a little money. I dont have a problem with the square headlights but I do think the round ones look a little better. Thanks guys.

CJs and YJs are more compatible when it comes to swapping. I know the doors swap pretty evenly.

Until 84 ish they had round, all the important toyotas had them like the 40s,45s, 60s, 62s, 55s, and 70s.

The 80s I believe always had molded, from 84-97 they were square though in the pick ups:)

CJ doors fit on a TJ fairly easily, just need to change the door latch.
