    Now I do like the above pictures. That dark green Wrangler does look good.

    OP - great thread!!

    It is an LJ w/ a CJ front clip and a custom made safari style hardtop.

    Here is a thread w/ more info from the builder/owner:

    "Safari Cab" custom hardtop project - JeepForum.com

    The guy has produced some amazing creations over the years. The above thread is certainly worth the read!

    Are you referring to this thread:

    Picture request, CJ5s with ACME hardtop - JeepForum.com

    Despite the title saying Acme, it contains a lot of various CJ-5 hardtop info. In fact it is the largest collection I've seen on the web.

    If not, can you post a link the thread you're referring to?

    Any pics of these ones aside from the advertisements? Would be real curious to see them, as I've never heard of them before.

    Agreed, this LJ was tastefully executed IMO. The steel wheels and custom top gives it a Scrambler look.

    Each of the below links are from the owner/builder.

    The Jeep in discussion is indeed a 2006 LJ w / a CJ front clip and a custom made hardtop:

    CJ Grille Conversion Kit for the TJ/LJ - Expedition Portal

    CJ Grille Conversion Kit for the TJ/LJ: Project Build Thread - Page 166 - JeepForum.com

    LJ-8 project - Jeep Wrangler Forum

    Great call. Despite both having a NY front license plate centered on the bumper, there are multiple differences.
