CJ7 front clip on a YJ

Anybody have a YJ with a CJ front clip? I've seen this around, but I was wondering how difficult this was to do, what to look out for, and general opinions on this (other than "Square is cooler") [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/wink.gif[/img]

Mel-one of the guys that works for six-states has done this. Check out their site, I believe that there is a link to his jeep from there. His is the one with the Warn Coil suspension.

Re: CJ7 front clip on a YJ

hey mel.. i have this on my jeep.. have a yj frame.. yj tub.. and a cj front clip.. real easy.. hood bolts on.. front grille bolts on.. (not sure how it would work with a yj radiator.. havent seen to many to comment) im using a cj radiator 3 core.. fenders bolt on.. but with the fenders you have to cut several inches off the inner fenderwell on the bottom.. to clear the yj frame.. since its wider.. and has those shock hoops.. did mine in a few hours..
any more questions.. email me..

Re: CJ7 front clip on a YJ

i did this to mine.. pretty straightforward. you need a body lift. i used a rancho 3 inch. 2 inch is marginal. grill mount needs to be fabricated. i can send a couple pics if you want
