YJ/CJ7 front clip conversion with flat fenders

i did some searches, just looking for some info.

thinking i'm going to retire the ZJ here fairly soon and engage on a new project; life has gotten in the way, and i just don't have the time to go out on long wheeling trips etc. which is sad for the ZJ, which is pretty much done (minus typical maintenence) so it largely just sits, unused.

so i've been thinking of embarking on a new project. going back to a YJ; not a 'flip' type of build, but a longer one i'm going to keep. naturally i'll do a build thread later haha.

so the one question i have; i want to do the CJ7 front clip conversion. i've read all the threads on it; no problem there. what i am curious about, is if i want to run a flat/tube fender, do i go with the typical YJ flat fenders, or do i order up the CJ7 feners? i'd assume the CJ7 fenders but i'm unsure.

greatly appreciate the help

Get the flat fenders to match your grill/hood.

Yes the curve on the side of the grill, where they typically attach, is specific to the generations as well as the length.

The easiest part of the conversion is bolting the hood on and then next is the fenders. The grill and all the internals are the tricky part. Anyone who says it is easy didnt do a nice job.

gotcha
i just meant the fenders part is easy.

just don't want to go order a pair of 600$ fenders only to find out they won't work. iv'e done a lot of reading up on moving the grill, rad hoses, mounts, all that, so i know its going to take time to make those things go smoothly. not a problem; i will have the time.

appreciate the help!
