For those of you who do not know the name Jeff Scherb, you should. He does a lot of great design/fabrication work, including a CJ front clip for a TJ body and Gaucho kit for a TJ/LJ. Oh and he did a barn door for a JK where the glass is part of the door rather than a separate hatch. And the wiper motor is behind the tire rather than on the top. The JL now has this wiper motor location. Much better.

A number of his little designs have made it into production. Currently he has been working on expedition type accessories like a trail kitchen for his JKU.

Right now he is also working on a JL style grill for a JK. Bigger slots, no Jeep badge, and indents for the lights on the outer slots. I think it is looking great.



He puts a lot on this thread over at JeepForum.

He's the guy who made the safari style hard top for the LJ that Great Tops sells right?

I didn't think I would like this at first, but that comparison looks way better.

The only thing about a Yj that's reliable is its mechanic.

Joey to Mike- That's more like it! Never done.....just outta money at the moment.

atjeep-Every time a YJ passes inspection, an angel gets it's wings.

JK on the left has flat fenders so i think that also plays better on the eyes

Agreed. Jeff uses his (wife’s) JK as the guinea pig for a lot of his development. So there is more there than just the grill change.

Jeff took pics of the finished grill next to his “retro wrangler” as well as his LJ with the CJ front clip he designed.
