CJ front Clip on a TJ?

I wanted to know if you could put a CJ front clip on a TJ or some combo of YJ or TJ fenders with a CJ grill and hood without to much trouble? Thanks!

Re: CJ front Clip on a TJ?

I've many times wondered this same thing. But being a square headlight man, I'd probably change the TJ to a YJ front end The only thing I'm not sure would match is the hood to the cowl. TJ's seem have a little more of a hump area on both sides of the vent.

Re: CJ front Clip on a TJ?

I think Jeepskate posted a thread answering this question a year or so ago, he knew someone that did it. He said major cutting was involved as the TJ has a low and wide front end where all the other jeeps are narrower and taller, and I think the guy had to replace the cowl under the windshield. Try a search, I don't remember the exact details.

Re: CJ front Clip on a TJ?

i dont think its possible without major cutting,

however i have seen pictures of people cutting into the TJ grill to add the turning signal lights from a CJ....gives it that CJ look......i thought it looked pretty good...
