Just curious, do cops hassle you for the tires sticking out from the fender wells? I know NJ DMV won't pass them. I want to trim mine like yours but amd concerned about the Popo pulling me over.

Never had a cop pull me over for my tires, though the DMV will fail your inspection. I just put the stock tires and wheels on for inspection time.



To OP, really liking the XJ, I almost bought one that color.

in my area i haven't had a problem yet, just dont drive around like a jerk, and keep your jeep kinda clean. if you look like an ******* redneck that just went muddin, they'll hassle you.
