YJ Clip on a TJ

Would a YJ front clip bolt up to a TJ? I know that YJ clips will fit on the CJ no problem and the CJ clips will fit on the YJ. Just looking for something a little different w/o being outrageous.

Re: YJ Clip on a TJ

[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img] Do you know what the definition of a "custom" is? [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/cool.gif[/img] Here is the definition: "If it has one take it off; if it doesn't have one, put one on; if it is high, lower it, if it is low, raise it; if it has round lights.........well, you get the idea." A YJ front end on a TJ is the craziest thing I ever heard of. What will it do to new Jeepies who have just recently learned to tell a YJ from a TJ from a CJ? Hmmmmm...?[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/crazy.gif[/img]

Re: YJ Clip on a TJ

Since you can't do a TJ clip to a CJ/YJ without grafting on a TJ cowl, I'd say the reverse would be true as well.

Re: YJ Clip on a TJ

I wasn't trying to do a crazy thing but yeah I guess it would confuse all those new Jeepies out there. But then again that might be the fun in it[img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/smile.gif[/img]. The reason I asked was that a buddy crunched his left fender,grill and dented the hood. Nothing too major. I have a front clip from a YJ laying around and he wondered how much work would be involved to do the conversion. I knew that the windshield angle was different but how much grafting of the cowling would it take for it to fit on the TJ.
Thanks.

You'd need everything from the front of the doors forward. It ain't no bolt-on ;-)
