CJ Grill on YJ frame and tub?

How hard is it to put a CJ grill, hood and fenders on a YJ frame and tub? I know they are different lengths, just not sure how much. Also what would I have to do to my front grill mount on the frame to do this? Move it totally or just slot the hole? thanks, Wade

76 CJ, well what is left of it! working on my YJ-7. YJ frame, YJ tub, 2" BDS SOA 3/4 ton D44 F and 14FF rear

Re: CJ Grill on YJ frame and tub?

To the best of my knowledge, the CJ front clip will more or less direct bolt to the YJ frame except that you need to trim the fenders to make room for the wider YJ frame. The CJ7 and YJ tubs are the same except for the where they connect to the frame (YJ being wider). I am looking to pick up the parts to do the same to my 94 YJ. I know that others on this BBS have made the switch.

Good Luck!

Well, you can do the whole clip, or just the grill and hood from the CJ. The YJ fenders will give you more room for tires.

You guys gotta search more. [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img][img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Re: CJ Grill on YJ frame and tub?

I just did that actually. The cj is a bit shorter, so you have to build a mount for the grille (I just welded a plate below the original that stuck back to the right spot. I also had to lift the body 3 inches so the fenders and grille would clear (the biggest problem was getting the radiator to clear the steering gear.) otherwise all of the bolt holes and everything are the same at the tub so stuff lines up great.

89 CJ/YJ thing 350 TBI, 700r4, NP231 SYE, 3 inch body lift, 4" superlift, 33's and an appetite for mud!!!

Re: CJ Grill on YJ frame and tub?

i also have done this.. trim the bottom of the cj fenders.. but i would go with the yj fenders myself.. also.. the front grille mount on the frame.. is alittle higher on a yj... so you will have to trim down the bushings.. its about 1/2" inch higher.. since the grille on a yj is shorter than a cj.. i also had to raise my radiator.. just drilled new holes.. think i raised it by about an inch.. no biggie..
