Re: Xj fender trimming for 3.5" lift and 31's

Not a problem, if you have any questions or need any advise on XJ stuff feel free to ask me. ive had 4 of them ranging from stock 87 xj to lifted 94, lifted 95 and lifted 98 on 35s. I did all my own work except for gearing my axles and i still have a ton of info if needed.

Re: Xj fender trimming for 3.5" lift and 31's

The Bushwackers are a great add. I have them on mine. They are not as easy to install as the instruction sheet states, or at least if you have other aftermarket goodies like I do. Just take your time and you will be fine. I actually finished mine up with Herculiner to dress up all of the cuts and the metal under the flares to keep the rust in check. Of course, I compleatly coated my underside and my rockers, but that's another thread.

I cut out the rear fenders on my xj on the outer edge of the stock fender flares and it fits 32" no lift and removed the front fenders. Going to build tube flares
