Depends on condition... Most rusty crusty wall hanger CJ-YJ-JK Grills go for $50-100. TJ Grills are more expensive. I browse CL for jeep part outs to get mine.

Just hanging in the garage It's the CJ2a grill that was originally on my jeep, swapped it out for an MB grill and hung the old 2a grill on the wall.

Thought about selling it since it was still in real good condition, but it's taken a liking to my garage, so there it sits

That's an old Ma Bell telephone installer's hand drill resting on top of the grill, that drill just might be older than the grill itself!

jeep art









found this in the junkyard, had the man torch off the hood and the front clip, found some battery operated l.e.d. xmas light, used a diamond bit dremel tool to cut the glass out in the back of the headlight and rattle canned a lot of layers of lacker on it. the top part looks amazing with the rust and paint colors. Also found a CJ/YJ tailgate and sanded that all down, rattle canned the letters and the tailgate, welded some camshafts onto it and cleaned em up.

That hand drill (called a brace) may not be as old as you think. I was issued one the day that I started at Ma Bell (BellSouth) in 1999. When you went to Line Construction school, you only were allowed to drill holes through poles with that. If your power drill lost it's charge in the field, then you had to break out the brace and drill the pole.

Love your Jeep grill......

Richmond, the original owner of the drill has worked for Bell for quite some time (actually, retired from it for some time now as well!), and apparently it wasn't new at that time either. But how old it is I suppose is just a moot point. I'll probably never use the drill myself, but I'm happy to have hold of it

The grill on the wall gives me inspiration, maybe next week I'll drive the Willys to work again! It's been out of commission for several months now!

It sounds like it truly is an old one. Give it a try sometime. You'll be surprised how fast it can drill a hole. All of these old grills make me miss my CJ.
Anyone have suggestions on what lights to use and how to wire them up for 120v use?

lighting

for lighting, you can use battery opperated xmas light, I ordered mine somewhere online for cheap, i used yellow ones for the signals and clear white lights for the headlights. one 3ft section for each headlight, and one yellow sections for both signals, with like 3 or 4 bulbs packed into them. Just cut the glass with a diamond bit dremel cut off wheel. Take your time, I broke the first one I tried but managed to get the next two right. Or you could just use regular plug in Xmas lights but then you would see the cord. Wiring it up for 120v might be a little difficult, but good luck.

Okay i need some help. I got a nice CJ5 grille off cl. of course the guy who sold it to me needed the headlight buckets and everything other than the metal. so now i have a grille and all glass sealed beam headlights from my tj i want lit up for my dorm room. my original idea was to cut the original bulb out and use a home light socket and light inside the old housing. but since the housing is glass im worried itll crack. my grandfather suggested i use a model train transformer to power them. i have my doubts. any ideas?
Also i dont have a way to secure the lights without the headlight buckets. couldnt i make a diy one out of a tubberware?
