to be honest i would have to see your jeep to judge wether or not you should run it. i think it looks pretty good. If i were mine i would want the the scoop to be a bit lower. but its pretty nice

I say Paint it and Run it... what's the worst that could happen? You decide you dont like it, and then you sell it... I think it would look great on the right XJ.
