This will soon be hanging on the wall in my office at work. Rather than sitting on the floor. And the headlights will be functional.

Wow these look great. Can someone detail how they were able to get the lights to light up from house voltage? And how they were secured?

Mine are powered off an led Christmas light selector, and led bulbs (radio shack) spliced in ....... I used a dremel diamond blade cutoff wheel to cut thru the headlight rears and I fastend the LEDs with high temp hot glue

For those of you trying to run a 12V headlight on 110/120, you'll need two of these

I just painted mine and hung it up over the weekend. I'm not completely finished. I'm thinking about putting a 7inch clock on one side, and something else on the other side, with an LED back light.

Both of these are awesome..I've been on the prowl for CJ or TJ grilles for my garage but they are hard to come by for a decent price

Anyone hook up speakers to these? I want to drop in a couple 7" speakers and wire them to the garage stereo

Page 1 of this thread has a pic of a grill with speakers, may help you out a little.

Easiest way is to use a diamond dremel cut off wheel and cut the back of the headlight off. There are many different options for lighting though. I cut the back of my headlights out and used strands of battery operated l.e.d. xmas lights. Just put in the google search bar "Battery operated xmas lights" and you will find many options. I then hid the wires and placed the little battery pack/on-off switch under the fender using glued on magnets. I'm sure if you don't have fenders, you could find somewhere behind/under/on top of the grill to hide it.

for the green JK grille, i used a set of PIAA offroad lights that had removable bulbs, so there was a slot in the back I fed the lights through. BigLots sold a pair of strands of warm white LEDs in their garden section. I think it was 6 or 8 bucks for the set. Everything is marked down for summer, so it's probably more like 5 bucks for the set now.

The grille was given to me when the PO swapped out his for aftermarket, but I tried to keep it in like new condition in case he ever needed it back. I used self-adhesive window insulation to fill in the slight gap between the lights and the grille. The foglights are the lids from Uncle Ben's microwavable cups.

duh. why the hell didn't I actually look in the thread haha thanks..

I google image searched that picture and found the link with the writeup:
http://www.certifiablejeep.com/grill...illeradio1.php
very cool

I think my new project will be a timeline of jeep grilles on one wall of my garage. Only hard part will be getting a willys grill without costing me an arm or leg. YJ grilles are almost as valuable as toilet paper so those will be easy, I also see JK grilles for peanuts as well as they are just plastic...gotta scour the junkyard for a TJ grille..

This is a great thread. I just acquired a spare grill with a jeep purchase. It is complete with headlights and turn signals. It also has the chrome overlay in perfect condition. (I'm still on the fence as to whether I like it or not.) I was thinking of selling it, but now I'm thinking of trying to connect it to power and hanging it in my garage.
STEP 1: Figure out how to power the lights.
STEP 2: Figure out where to hang it. I have no room.

I'm excited.

If I had some money, I might buy it. But I don't, so I'll build it.
REAL JEEPS ARE BUILT, NOT BOUGHT.
