im ready to be flamed.

Here is my 95. I have sitting in the garage a hood and grill from a cj. I have a pro tools tube bender, and will be making front fenders to match the rears. My question is, to or not to do the cj front clip.
im up in the air about losing the square lights for the cj grill. i like the look now, but also like the cj swap.
what to do.........

Be different and put square headlights in the CJ grill. I love the CJ hoods.

You dumb son-of-a-BEEEEP, WTF are you thinking! Nobody in their right mind would do that to a YJ!!!!!!!!!!










J/K now you have been properly flamed.
Do what makes you happy.
If it were mine, I'd leave the square headlights.

I like seeing it done, but I would never do it, too big of a hassle for no gain at all.

I have a CJ, a TJ and a YJ.

My YJ is the most fun, square headlights and all.

Buy a CJ...then you will have the best of both! Just kidding.

Have you looked at this thread? Slightly different take on the conversion. He put the round headlights into the YJ grill.

How about we just lick you instead of flaming you? Then you'll think twice about thinking twice!

Why not really be different, put one square and one round.

Do it to it. I've always liked the CJ front clips.
