Has any one ever?

Seen or have a cherokee with a tj/yj/cj hood an fenders on it, I have a cherokee an maybe able to pick up a hood n fenders, wonder if anyone's ever thought of it or if it would even work, I know the body lines don't really match up the best but if they cram all that **** under there in a yj I could possibly make it work, probably be a Frankenstein of a machine afterwards lol.

I can't imagine how wrangler fenders (which bolt to tub) would work on an XJ (uni-body). But I'm no Chip Foose, so who knows?

Anything is possible with enough time/money/skill. Not sure it's a very practical modification though.

It's far from just being a matter of bolting stuff up. I've got more pics of this thing lying around somewhere I'll try to dig up.

That just doesn't look right. I don't think my brain wants to process it....it does however look better than the 2014 Cherokee.

Yeah, it looks to bulky and the body lines don't match up at all. I've seen plenty of dove-nosed XJs with CJ style grills, but using the actual grills and hoods look terrible.
