Parts You Wish Were Made for Your YJ

Hi Guys,

I wanted to see what your ideas were on some parts that you wish were available for your YJ or other model jeeps. I will have some free time this winter to fabricate some goodies and figured I'd get some ideas from some members and possibly help some of you guys out. It seems like every time I get a new magazine from a jeep parts supplier there are less and less parts available for the YJ model. This is already very prevalent in the CJ community as some aftermarket options seem to be slimming down in availability.

With that said, toss some ideas at me and we'll see if we can get some things going

some very good ideas there! I'm assuming you are talking for a 4.0 correct?

EDIT: If so, not that I suggest going with a newer model 4.0 intake manifold which is much better flowing and not terribly hard to adapt to the older style 4.0

I am looking into the other parts requests as we speak and will see what I can do.

CJ tailgate kits.

Personally I'd dig a hood mounted spare kit. Yeah, your sight would significantly hampered, but I'd like to try it.

World cab kits. Even a RHD conversion for those of us that are bored with driving on the left...





Machine gun mounting kits. What? I live in NJ.

You must be really bored with that jeep! haha

Not sure If I could drive on the right hand side and have a 33x12.50 spare mounted on my hood.

The CJ tailgate kit is very feasible and I will begin to look into it.

The hood mount would be for us running smaller tires still. I have 31s on factory TJ 7" wide rims.

RHD conversion is just a joke. Although I'd love to buy a RHD YJ....



Non fabrication part I'd like are those three color international tail lights that have the added amber blinker. An easy conversion kit...

I do really like the gun mount idea, being a hunter myself I'd like to develop something that is secure and sturdy but keeps it out of sight as much as possible. Would you be more interested in a pistol or rifle mount? Any general idea where you'd like to mount it?

Roll bar mount to a picatinny female. I'd buy that...

Very cool idea! So you're saying something that wraps around the roll bar but has the male side picatinny (much like a scope or flashlight mount) and you would just slide the firearm onto the mount and then tighten?

Hmmmmm, you got me thinking....

Gotta add a ball swivel for elevation and add stops for left and right to about 100* of panning ability.

Think this thread would do better in wrangler GD

HAHA! you didn't mention that this mount was going to need the ability to aim and shoot from the jeep. I knew they had some wacky laws out in CA but I'd like to see how that one pans out for you haha. Maybe I should think about a disclaimer...?

Our Bill of Rights is the same as your Bill of Rights. Its just that my state thinks that there's no need for the second amendment because we have the right to peacefully assemble. Banning firearms and promoting drug use. Since 1848.

On a side note, I think the court challenges to the open carry ban will be interesting. Not much they can do but overturn it or make the entire state a "shall issue" for CCW's.

Yup. Sounds about right. But seriously, i'll look into that type of mount if you are serious about it. Minus the swivel aspect of course
