Just from a quick Google search, companies already have a standard Jeep style grille, blinker conversions, doors with mirrors, etc.

I don't hate the Grill as-is, kinda sets it apart from Jeeps. But I was looking into just putting one of those chrome CJ grill covers on. Probably paint it though.

It's not a Jeep. Stop trying to make it look like a Jeep.

Do a grill like all the JK guys love to do, but instead of angry eyes make them Asian.

It's more Jeep than a JK, IMO. I think these are super cool, but am not interested in spending that much for one currently. These are like the Jeep that should have been, but wasn't. However, I find the grille to be poor looking and wonder how close a "real" cj would be to fitting.

These are closer to being a "Jeep" than anything else. Apparently it's Ok and cool to put Chevrolet emblems on an actual Jeep, just because of an engine swap, but not a Jeep grille into a CJ copy because it's not built in the USA?

I have nothing on my Jeep that indicates that it has a GM driveline or Ford axles.

RE my comments about it not being a Jeep, I think it's cool as-is. AFAIC make the necessary offroad mods to it and leave the rest alone.

When I see a jeep grill with no headlights, it makes me think of this:



At least Hosejockey puts headlight decals on his jeepish buggy.

Had a great time running the ORV Routes on Drummond. Got to use the winch a few times too.
