Okay, I know this has been debated many times before...should a Jeep have round or square headlights.
Personally, I like them both.

While I like Square Headlights on Full Sized Jeeps (Grand Wagoneers! WHOOHOOO!!), on Baby Jeeps, I seem to gravitate to Round Lights.
It appears to me that YJ are cheap around here, while CJ command way more $$$.

So, here is one solutiuon, CJ face on a YJ.
CJ grill assembly, hood and fenders that just bolt on a YJ.
I like it!

The round headlight below is a 1988 YJ
The square headlight below is a 1987 YJ

So, what do you say?

Where does the CJ stuff come from? Where would the CJ stop and the YJ start. I mean the front grill/headlight for a CJ would require a CJ hood too. Then does the hood cover the YJ right.....BLAH BLAH BLAH...Not looking like a good idea....

:nono:

The CJ front clip (grill, hood, and fenders) will be pretty much a bolt-on procedure on a YJ tub.

Personally I love the square headlights on my YJ. They scream late 80's/early 90's; however, I can appreciate wanting the round headlight nostalgia.

Look good, nothing wrong with round.
And its an easy swap, you can actually get by with leaving the YJ fenders.
