    Default Converting CJ-7 to Wrangler TJ

    I've been hunting for a Wrangler TJ model in Karachi. During my quest i've been to Shershah, Garden, Lyari, Jamshed Road, Golimar, Saddar, etc but havent found any. All the models I found were either original YJ or CJ-7 converted to YJ. Came to know that only 3-4 ppl in Karachi have the TJ model.

    Due to cost considerations, I decided that I'll buy a CJ-7 and then have it converted to TJ model by doing modifications in the body.

    Does any Pakwheel member know of any person who can do the complete conversion of CJ-7 to Wrangler TJ. I do know that CJ-7 can be easily converted to YJ model due to similar dimension but have no idea of the TJ model.

    Your help will be highly appreciated.

    Pictures of YJ and TJ model are attached for your reference.

    Thanks.

    I want to buy CJ7 and then convert it to Wrangler TJ model by modifying the grille, fenders, hood, etc.

    Buying an original Wrangler TJ would be very expensive, above 10 lac.

    i have consulted a number of mechanics and jeep experts and they say that the chassis of CJ7, Wrangler YJ and Wrangler TJ are same so any of these bodies could be fixed on any of the three chassis.

    It will cost you atleast 6 lacs in Pindi and will take about 8-9 months.

    This is unbelievable. So much expensive and huge time required.

    I dont think it should be like this. Its simply like converting CJ7 to Wrangler YJ model (square head lights one). What do you say.

    Furthermore only the grille, fenders and hood is to be changed.

    There may be some kind of misunderstanding.

    Awaiting your kind reply.

    If you have a CJ-7 then its a different story. There is a CJ-7 (see in jeeps for sale section) in very good condition but the owner is asking 5.50. So you can calculate the rest.

    Here is what I think...
    The time, money and effort that your project will require depends on what Exactly you want. I did a CJ7 to TJ conversion and it took me 1 1/2 years to get it done. That was the first one done here in the twin cities at least. Looking at it now in detail, one can see the skill and effort of the master denter that when into the conversion and why it took so much time. I have all the conversion work documented in pictures..
    For example, it took 2 days just to make the small grill behind the hood that drains water (see pics). One can get it done in 3 hours too but if you are looking for quality, it takes time. The pictures below are self explanatory.

    So you have to explain what you want and be clear about it. Just square headlights would not be a YJ but you may like just that.
    Just my 2 cents.

    Thanks @Ehsan,

    Can you also upload pictures of the finished vehicle. I saw your awesome thread on the pirate4x4 website. The TJ model jeeps being made in Pakistan are superb.
