Your pre-road trip to do list includes "put doors back on."

You think airbags are for p#ssies.

You measure the quality of a vacation by the number of bugs stuck to your windshield.

You actually don't have a windshield.

I frickin' love this thread!

You know you drive a YJ when you think the TJ and JK guys are just a bunch of whiners everytime they put up a thread about something being "broken." You click the thread to find out it's somebody whining about their seats not sliding forward far enough, their under-hood light bulb being burnt out, their power windows/door locks don't work, the air bag light is on, etc. Seriously though, I hope I'm not the only one who thinks, "Oh, great, not another 'My auto-dimming rear view mirror isn't dimming anymore. Oh, hehehe, I forgot to push the button to turn it on' thread. lol

I laugh everytime I see a thread about a feature that our Jeeps don't even have malfunctioning in their newer Jeeps. lol

I wonder if it would be better just to take an existing YJ grill and mod it to fit the JK.

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.

it takes a whole tank of gas in a pressure washer to get MOST of the mud off.


you get better gas mileage when covered in mud. [seriously i got 2 more miles per gallon, from 14 to 16]
