Ah so, young grasshopper. I see you want to convert to the dark side. There is no yj grille that will run round headlights that I know of, but, I have good news. Late model cj grilles and fenders (76-86) will bolt right on to your tub. So you'll have a yj that looks like a cj-7. Savvy?:D

Yeah..uh huh. We can help ya out with that. Come on by this weekend and we'll get her taken care of. I think I have one square to round headlight conversion kit left. I was going to send it to amerijeep but I'll let you have it. :D

Seriously though. The only way I know to do that would be to change out the entire grill of your Jeep. Are you sure this is what you want to do? If you don't mind me asking - why do you want to do it?

This well probably be the last time I speak to you, since there is no mutual respect, but there was a company at one time that sold a conversion. I don't know who or any other details. Only that I have seen it.

Best thing I could tell you is sell your jeep and buy one that has the headlights you want, since that is what is important.

Gotta admit, the title of this thread caught my eye.

Why wouldn't you want to do this conversion ?

ROUND LIGHTS RULE !!

It's really the most idiotic thing I have ever heard. What a freakin' waste. That's all you want to spend money on is changing headlights? MOG, you have a haibt of downing the YJ every chance you get. No one on here is the one that stiole your milk money. Let the anger go.

like someone said before the later cj models bolt right in. youll have to take out your grill completely. and then put in the cj grill. then get a cj radiator. they do bolt in.

There is no way I believe that. They aren't even shaped the same. There is a thread on here somewhere that has a memeber that defaced his YJ and put on a CJ front clip. It did not fit well. I'll see if I can find the thread.

I hafta agree with Amerijeep, not because I'm a jeep expert, but because I just carved all three out of clay and the YJ grill has a distinctive shape. The lines are different.

After spending many $'s on creating an awesome, kick butt, YJ, someone showed me an article about round headlight grills, that are direct replacements, for the YJ. I told that person, no thanks, I do not wish to desecrate, disrespect, blasphemy, such a classic look. But yes, it should be available for sale, by now. I just do not remember the magazine, that it was in, or who builds it. There is just something very different, and very likeable, about the looks of a YJ. Especially, when you let it grow, to full stature.

i have a 4 wheel magazine and there was a black YJ in their with a round headlight conversion. he had round CJ headlights. it looked sweet and better IMO. i can look up the article if you want. i think it says a little something about how to do it because it was under the "tricks section". let me know.
