You try honking your horn only to realize that the horn has not worked, and will not work until you can afford a REAL horn. You are being tailgated all this time by an angry man in a minivan, also on the phone, who is not paying attention. You cannot slow down, you cannot honk, you certainly can't outrun the SUV-thing or the minivan. You can't even get out of your own way. SO, in weighing your options, you realize that the safest thing to do is get your timing right, jump a curb and stop in someone's lawn. Just as you are about to make this fun fantasy become a reality, the woman in the SUV-esque vehicle realizes that she was about to merge into the side of your steel-and-canvas deathtrap, swerves back into her lane, and slows down so she can start flipping you off and screaming, as if my lack of horn somehow caused her to nearly merge into the side of my vehicle while talking on her cell phone (illegal in my county) while changing lanes without signaling. She then manages to get next to you at the next stop light, and rolls down her window to yell some more, at which point the police officer -who was 2 cars behind you during this escapade- arrives and pulls her over, citing her for the aforementioned moving violations, as well as failure to wear a seatbelt. Yeah, and I thought my Jeep was a deathtrap. It's only as safe as the person behind the wheel wants it to be.

BTW, that actually happened yesterday while I was on my way to work. I need to get my horn fixed. I never realized that the horn is the most vital piece of safety equipment on my Jeep. With the ratings the IIHS gave this thing back in '87, I need all the safety features I can get.
UGH, I feel your pain. Had a chick in a minivan try to do that crap to me when the lanes merged from two down to one. I had one thought when this was going on: "Go ahead, bounce off my 35's."

Next stoplight, after it had opened back up to two lanes, she tried the roll-down-the-window-and-chew-my-*** trick. I asked her how long she'd been living in Illinois. She said all her life. I replied, "Well, then you should know that Illinois State Law says that it is the responsibility of the person merging to safely merge into the correct lane, not the responsibility of the person IN the correct lane to let you in. There was plenty of room both ahead of and behind me, but you chose to sit right next to me. Drive better next time."

Most of us have that issue or will have it.

-windshield seal is rotted and cracked
-the tube in the fire wall for the heater is clogged

It's really bad when you can tell at night, simply by looking at the distance between the two headlights

That's what happened when I went to look at my Jeep! lol We were driving the Formula, which gets like 21mpg highway, and we ended up taking the wrong exit ramp, and didn't realize it for over an hour. . . 45 minute trip turned into 3 hours! lol

It was still fun, and of course I don't mind, because if I didn't make that trip, I wouldn't own a YJ right now. . .

YJ Love

You have a custom "YJ" grill made for your new JK Rubicon Unlimited.

(Actually, this should be my response to: "You know you love your YJ when..."

you know you drive a yj when your friend jumps into the passenger side, gets is belt loop caught, complains about it, and all you have to do to get him to shut up is tell him about how every pair of pants you own are missing belt loops because of the same thing.

92 yj, 4" rough country suspension lift, 33's, custom discos, skull shifter knob....

Yj- when the speed limit is no longer a restriction, but rather a challenge ready to be conquered every time.

You do not need your keys to start the Jeep as long as you did not lock the steering wheel. Now if I can just remember where I put my keys it has been so long since I used them...

I was actually joking. Don't own a JK. But do wish I did have some pictures for you.

If I did have a JK, though, I would actually consider hiring a good fabricator to put a JK-sized "YJ" grill together. Just for laughs really.

Actually though, that kind of thing could end up turning in to an interesting low-volume, high-dollar-per-unit fab business once the fabricator worked out the kinks.

Bad news is that the Fabricator might end up spending months trying to make a version that looked anywhere near OEM. First try might end up costing a guy $10,000 or more in time, effort and materials even if he was experienced.

Maybe if the fabricator relaxed his standards a bit he could keep the initial costs down.

Actually a well-measured, flat sheet of steel would probably get the job done fairly well. Just cut it to the dimension of the JK grill. Then measure and cut out the JK grill slots. Then measure/cut for rectangular headlights and signal lights. Drill your holes for mounting hardware. Then Prime, paint the factory color and install. And obviously, you'd have to pull your JK's round headlights in favor of YJ-styled rectangular (HID?) lights

Wouldn't look OEM-quality up close, but it might do the job at a distance.
