Late Model Fenders ... Early Model Flares?


Recommended Posts

Hi all, 'nother dumb question I haven't been able answer yet ...

 

... since I have the 2000 XJ front clip going onto the MJ soon ($100 for fenders header assembly and harness was to good to pass) ...

 

I did not get the flares though ... I was figuring to re use the stock 1988 front flares ... will they fit?

 

On another note ... good possibility I may end up with the whole XJ shortly.

Have napiers on my XJ ... longer is not a problem ... I plan to keepnthe MJ 2wd amd roll on 31s with a 3.55 8.25 in the rear. Just the 00 update as I prefer that front end.

 

If I end up with the whole XJ ... and don't wind up divorced ... I may swap the interior as well at some point.

 

Thanks for the replies.

I would like to do this same thing. I have the fenders, and header just need to find time to do it. My plan is to keep old bumper also, I've always liked the new grill and header but just can't bring myself to like that big plastic looking bumper. Oh well to each his own

I've put the older style flares on the new fenders . The holes line up but you do have to cut the flares where it meets the bumper extension .
