bet the XJ guys have seen it.... do you post there???


Being an former XJ guy, I use to see this alot.... the best looking option is using TJ rear flares on all four corners of the XJ. On the front, they are switched side to side.... a little triming, drilling, and viola.... if you do it right, it looks factory.

I'm not a fan of front TJ flares on an XJ either. I've only seen one that I liked. The guy had an ARB front bumper and it matched up to the flare pretty good.

I have done it . I used 4 rear flares instead of the fronts . looked better than a empty hole or two marker lights. It takes some work to get it to fit nice but not every one was as fussy about the fit . Plenty of write ups on it . check out NAXJA

What does having a wife do with not being able to own your XJ,Im confused.It was there before she was.Poor little XJ,(tears)
