Areyou sure that is not a 98?

HSL 4X4 10-13-2013 06:25 AM

YJ? Y is next to the T on the keyboard though so I'll drop it. I dig the black grill though. What did you use, spray on bed liner? I'm gonna do this once my Jeep actually runs again!

MyRed88 10-13-2013 10:01 AM

I have a custom grill on an 88 yj, because round headlights make it a jeep. And I just used Plasti dip so I can leave it or go back to red when ever I want.

That's YJ

wrong bumper, wrong headlights. I guess beauty is in the eye of the beholder.
wouldn't have said anything but I can't let that round makes it a jeep crack pass.

the bumper is there until I can get a poison spider stinger and the square lights are hummer or Cherokee like

wickedyj 10-13-2013 11:59 AM

what yr is the bumper from? you should look into round turn signals under the round headlights

HSL 4X4 10-13-2013 01:01 PM

That's pretty bad ass

MyRed88 10-13-2013 04:23 PM

It's off of a 2010 rubicon I think. And I'd like to swap for round turn signals but I don't know where to get them

MyRed88 10-21-2013 08:12 AM

Ordered an new rear bumper from Morris 4x4 center on Saturday. If it ships today it should be here by Thursday. I plan to strengthen the structure of the bumper put a weld on the inside where the d-ring tabs are strengthen the hitch and one day add a swing out tire carrier. I will also be getting grade 8 hard ware to mount with. Not sure if I want to weld to the frame or not tho.. Thoughts on bumper an mounting?

MyRed88 12-29-2013 06:06 PM

Got my new tail lights mounted and working with a few casualties one brand new hole saw and 3 saws all blades I'll post pictures tomorrow. It turned out really great!! Also I forgot to post a picture of my bumper. I'll do that tomorrow too

So my 94 is a real Jeep ? Why get a Yj If you don't think its a Jeep , Not here to flame but that comment makes no sense . I like the fact you are doing custom work and being different but damn, don't take a shot at the rest of us who like our squares . cheers

I'm liking the custom grill my YJ is also an 88 I looked into a TJ but how the dashes are in them I can't sit comfortably in them so I went with the YJ I'm glad I did though I like the dash set up and simplicity of it

To each his own. As long as it's a Jeep, that's all that matters. I've had an 83 CJ-7, a 95 YJ & 99 & 00 TJ's. I love the TJ's.

I love em all just cant sit comfortably in the TJ, but your right as long as its a Jeep then that's all that matters

So I've decided on getting metal cloak fenders for the front and back eventually once I have a steady income. I plan to do an axle swap for the 8.8 then I will find a lift kit. I want a SUA lift that will fit 35s. Then I will probably order some new tires and rims I think I want 35" baja claws and pro comp simulated beadlock rims. I would also like to do selectable lockers so they aren't on all the time and regear for the 35s but I'm not sure if I will be able to afford this. I'll probably just slowly collect this stuff until I have all of it to put together hopefully done by the end of summer.

I concur, the FIRST WRANGLER had square headlights, all the other "Wranglers" with round headlights are bastards....

This. No square headlights? Not a Wrangler, just a cheap imposter :thumb:

Be careful with those headlights. If they don't meet DOT or SAE standards then the light pattern might be iffy. Be sure to run a pair of quality bulbs in them, no HID bull**** or chinese brand Halogens.
