Re: Cj onepiece nose

Do you wheel you jeep? If you are into pusing it wheeling I'd stay away from a glass front end, the chances of hitting and messing up the front end are pretty good, just find a nice set of steel ones, rattle can then and then when ever they get hit put them back in shape with a hammer and throw some more paint on them. I think glass front ends are sweet, just a ton of coin for for something that could get messed up on the trail.

Re: Cj onepiece nose

I've had an AJ's one piece front end for about 3 years now, and I have no complaints. It's held up very well. I mounted a Ford radiator in my set-up using angle iron to make a cradle for it. I welded 3/8" thick steel pads to the top of the frame where I wanted the radiator to mount; drill and tapped the pads for .5" thread; used .5" all thread and rubber boat trailer roller cut to length to mount the radiator at the height I needed; then ran flat stock for bracing at the top back to my MORE extended shock hoop. The bracing could be run back to the frame just as easily. Unfortunately my site is down at the moment so I don't have any pics available, but it's a simple clean install IMO, and it only cost about $10 and a couple hours of labor.
