    95 zj face lift

    So I had part of the front end apart on my 95 zj to replace the rad, and since I had it apart, I figured face lift time! I already had a spare header panel and bumper from a 96-98 zj laying around, so that's what I did .. I also had a spare platinum niner grill, so I used it too.. Really easy to swap.. Took about 15-20 min maybe? .. I really do love the look of it..

    The 95 could have used a bath ....and you have the hood slightly popped on your 5.9. Dude - do we need to have an intervention about your picture posing?

    Looks good though

    I was going to do the same thing on my 93 but the plan changed slightly.

    When it was just going to get the 5.9 and the updated interior I was gonna go with the late front end. Once I decided to do the full OBD2 update I decided it needed to stay 'early ZJ'



    Other than that;

    1) I love your license plate! That's ballserific

    2) What the heck kind of vehicle am I looking at way in the background of the first pic up there?

    Oh.. And as for how to post pics.. I'm not sure what happened.. I posted them from my iPhone ( no tap talk), and when I hit preview post, it worked fine like it did in my second one, but then it said something about max 5 pics, then changed it to the way it is, and only posted the bottom ones properly ... I dunno lol

    Well anyway, I like your 95/98 Jeep gitrdone


    and actually I meant the thing that's in the back of the frame of what are now the 2nd and 3rd pix now (you rearranged them, or replaced them or whatever)

    At first I could only see it in what's now the third pic, and I thought it was some giant offroad thing way in the background. Now that you fixed the pics I can see it way better in the second pic and I guess judging by the size of the little red wagon in front of it that it's a giant 'ride-on' toy!

    Well when he first posted these the pics were screwy and didn't open up like they do now.

    I could only see the pic that's third now and it was much smaller - so ya in the tiny pic with the bushes in front of it, it did kinda looked like a real vehicle way off in the background.

    I LOLd when I opened up the second pic this time and saw what it was

    And ya.. It's really not hard to do if you have all the parts... The only other thing you need is the 96-98 " fog" lights as they mount different than the 93-95, but the 95 steel front bumper already has the mounting holes for the 96-98 style lights

    Wait - so that's an employee vehicle in the background in this pic?

    Do you work with midgets?




    I do like the way it came out though.

    Are you gonna leave the gold or undo it?

    On someone else's pinstripe removal gig I suggested just going over them with black vinyl pinstripes from the local auto parts store - although it seems some of the guys have had good luck removing them. I always thought it would mess up the clear coat
