I want to take my stock fender flares off, they dont really match the jeep very well. I started to take one off, and it just snapped the bolt right in half , I tried another one and the same thing happened. Thats not really a big deal if Im trying to get them off though.

I saw that it would look really goofy with the bumperette things, because they mold right into the flares, and without the flares it doesn't look right. I was wondering if they sell bumperettes (front and rear) that dont look like they mold into the fenders.

My XJ is a 98

I dont have any pics of what I am talking about because the computer with the digi cam stuff on is acting up, so I cant load any pics as of now.

I too was looking into take the plastic thing underneath the steel bumper. I figure i might end up ripping it off later in the summer on accident. Course i'm not too sure what it would look like without the plastic bumper in the front, and buying a whole new one and the fender flares would be too much money. Any ideas?

Will the bumperettes from a pre-97 cherokee fit on a 98, they dont mold into the fenders, and i was wondering if they would fit, and look good on it

Before I replaced my bumper I just cut the bumperettes. I removed the valance/spolier thing too.

That might give you some ideas. Wink
