HELP!!!

Got a buddy that bought a 93 YJ loves the jeep loves the ride and handleing BUT He is a round headlight type of guy!!!!!

I seached the net for one lots of pages on one but I cannot find who make one?????

Any ideas????

He told me if he can't find one it's gonna get a CJ front put on it, I can't see that when it's rust free but i guess i already have ROUND headlights!!!!!

Why is it that after you get stuck everyone helps you out then tries to make it though the same spot???

Tim, as far as I know (to have the CJ grill) you gotta do the fenders too. Bring him on over and take a look at mine. Needs about a 1.5 inch body lift on the tub to line up with the fenders and CJ grill... then it's just a matter of selecting and fitting a radiator.

Is this the only hammer you've got?

yes you can do the conversion.. i would get a cj hood/grille... you do not need the fenders.. but the cj fenders match up better.. the yj ones will work.. the grille mount on a yj frame is actually higher than a cj's.. thats the center mount in the front.. by about an inch.. yj grilles are shorter.. i took out the rubber spacer to get it to line up..

According to the cut and paste from pirate4x4 (below) the cj/yj conversion grill is not coming to the market. i was interested in it too.

Robert,

The YJ Conversion grill will not be coming to market. The production costs
and time were too much. Sorry. We are pleased that you showed such an
interest in that part, and hope that you find the thousands of other items
we bring to the market equally as appealing. Please feel free to visit our
website often to see the new product offerings and feel free to contact any
of our retail distributors to purchase those items.

Subject: yj round headlight conversion

Good morning, I'm trying to find out if anyone is selling the round
headlight conversion grill for the yj. I'm looking forward to being
able to buy it.

Thanks,

Robert Rambo

the hood is different than the grille.. you can get it to work.. but it will be a lot of fabbing.. thats why i said get a cj grille and hood.. the fenders will mount up.. only difference is the curve by the headlight.. and you can beat that in with a hammer.. a lot of guys put yj fenders on cj's.. since they look better when trimmed flat.. and are usually less rusty..

It can't be very difficult to cut the square buckets out and weld round ones in.
