YJ fenders on a CJ ????

Will it work? I need to do something about my front fenders i was thinking maybe trying to find YJ fenders from a junk yard and useing them. Will they fit? I was thinking that i might have a problem with the hood and grill. i don't know if there are any differences. Any and all info is appreciated. Thanks

Kyle

They will, but I don't know if they need to be modified or not. This months 4Wheel and Offroad has a bronze/gold CJ7 with YJ fenders and TJ flares on them. They look really good.

Re: YJ fenders on a CJ ????

the hood and grill stick out further on a YJ so when you put the fenders on a CJ you will have to mount the gill a little bit back of where the YJ grill goes. have fun and good luck [img]/wwwthreads_images/icons/laugh.gif[/img]

Re: YJ fenders on a CJ ????

Did this mod about 4 years ago...check out my site at http://jeepskate.4x4.org for pics & details. Basically they fit, but you end up toeing them in ever so slightly to fit snug against the grill. Also, since the YJ nose is longer, you have to grind of a small lip on the fenders and use the second column of bolt holes, fill and paint the first row, and do some more filling, drilling & painting for the hood catches...setting mine up to use TJ catches.

Re: YJ fenders on a CJ ????

Hey Rodney,

Do you know if YJ rear flares will fit a Scrambler rear?

Thanks,
Tom

Re: YJ fenders on a CJ ????

The yj flairs should fit the back of a scrambler since YJs actually have round wheel wells in the back. It is just the flair that is square.
