Default My White 01 XJ Build

Well I finally pulled the trigger a couple months back to lift my 01 that I bought back in 08. Here are a couple before and after shots. Did a RC 3 inch lift with aal kit and new lower control arms. Went with Mickey Thompson 15x7 Sidebiters and Goodyear Duratracs 31x10.50 R15's. Still got some stuff to add on, but one step at a time.

This is what me and my buddy tackled last weekend. Installing a set of the Bushwacker Flat fenders. Talk about alot of trimming and cutting. But I'm way happy with the results.
Next up will be the install of my JCR Bumpers and rocksliders. Just got them back from powder coating.

Getting started and removed stock flare.







All done cutting and painting the edges and inner fender with some undercoating.



Installing brackets and flare.



And here are the remaining install pics.







Here are a few of the back, was getting dark so I couldn't take all the pics I would've liked to.





And here is the finished pics.





Let me know what you guys think.

Same tires as mine What size? – I have 33s.

You did a clean job on the flares. If I end up doing third party flares, I might do the cut outs by Bushwacker instead.

I just went with 31's for now, but after cutting the fenders I'm pretty sure I can fit a 33 in there.

Thanks, took forever to get done as both my buddy and I are very picky about our work so we took our time and made sure it all came together right. I am very pleased with the outcome for sure.

Yeah I like these flares way better than the other flares out there, gives it a modern day look. The other flares look dated IMO. These are expensive, but well worth it once they are on the Jeep.

Here's a crappy cell phone pic of my jeep after I had installed the front bumper and lights. Oh and the roof rack. I will try and snap some better pics tomorrow since I installed my JCR sliders last night. It's coming together, now it's time to go test it out.

Well finally got some updated pics of my XJ. Made some suspension changes, took out the 3" Rough Country and installed a 4.5 Rubicon Express with Bilsteins. Man what a difference in ride. Also got both bumpers and rock sliders installed. JCR makes some killer stuff!!!
