Perrys Baja flares on a 01 xj

Hey all, I have read over everything I could find, but I am still not confident that I can do this. I want to put Perrys Fab and Fiber baja flares on my 2001. They have 1996 listed as the last year these will fit. So I come to you guys with 2 questions.

1: Has anyone tried to put these specific (http://www.mcneilracinginc.com/off-road-fiberglass/jeep/cherokee/) fenders on a newer body style? Did it work? Do you have pictures of the final product.

2: If no one has specifically tried these fenders, have you tried any older style fenders on the newer body style XJ? Do you have pictures?

My main thing is, I found people say yes, and people say no. But no one was posting pictures. So I thought maybe I could get more from you guys.
Thanks

The joint where the the grill surround and the fenders meet have slightly different shapes 1996/older vs. 1997/newer. If you mix and match older and newer fenders/grille surrounds, you end up with a mismatch at the joint. You may be able to rework the fiberglass to smooth out the mismatch.

Thanks for the reply. That was the primary place I was worried about. I couldn't imagine the fitment would match around there.

I did some more research, and it looks like these are the flares that work best for the newer body style. http://www.glassworksunlimited.com/19to20jechfr.html
A little more cash than the Perry's flares, but if it fits better its worth the money.
