Thanks for the input guys ..

My idea behind this was to not pay any extra money since I already have the Complete Front clip of a TJ and have a YJ with no front clip..

If I'm going to buy anything then I will buy YJ front Clip ..

so to use the most of what you already have , you just need to swap the TJ hood for a YJ's...then do a little metal massaging to get everything to fit together

Probably cheaper and easier just to buy a TJ.

Round headlights =/= YJ.

How'd you use the tj tube fenders on a yj ? & did the grille bolt in to them & line up alright?
