YJ to TJ grill with lots of pics
 
First I drilled out all of the plug welds on the Tj grill to remove the the front grill sheet metal from the rear core support. The jeep I got the grill from was in an accident so I had to do a little metal work on it first.

Tj grill sitting on the YJ core support. You will notice 2 gaps on the bottom corners of the grill from the different years

I cut pieces off the YJ grill to use as patch panels.

That is sweet and confusing if I did not know what you had done. I love the old school hood tie downs and the TJ front. It would confound me if I saw it in a parking lot!

I say JK lights. I think it would look cleaner than the CJ lights sticking out.

Very nice Job man.

very cool...

looks pretty cool..did you have to use filler or anything on the upper edges where the hood/fender line is?? This looks like a way easier method than replacing all the front parts...

Wow, lots of work to keep the gaps to a minimum! I'm in awe
