Theres a guy running around my neighbor hood with a YJ front end on his TJ. I asked him about it and he kinda gave me a blank stare.


Hold onto something... Quick!!!

It should be pretty easy. The fenders and grille will *almost* bolt right up. The grille should. The fenders might have to have new holes drilled but they should be about the same dimensions.

The hood as others have stated is the issue. a YJ hood will fit the TJ grille fine, and vice versa, so no worries there. The YJ and TJ cowl curves are different so the hoods don't look great on the opposite model. This does mean though that you could use a TJ hood with the YJ fenders and grille with little to no issue.
