Trimming/ flares

I recently trimmed my 98 xj and for a while I like the way it looked with no flares. Well things change and i really like the way the flat style fender flares look but I'm not sure if they'll still fit although I trimmed past the original fender holes. Help :/

Have you held them up against the arches to find out. All depended on how much you cut.

i don't have the fenders yet, and the only picture i have at the moment is my profile pic. Would i just need to make new holes if its at a decent length?

If it is a 2dr you can use 4 REAR TJ flares ( I don't know why anyone would run a front TJ flare on an XJ) and then trim up the lip of the flare to get it "flat." Although this is on an MJ and isn't trimmed flat I think it gives you the idea:
