Xenon TJ Flat Flares Installed

Installed my Xenon Flat Flares today. Took about 3 hours. The rears were super easy but the front took some time. Mounting the lights and wiring everything was a PITA but worth it. I soldered everything, shrink tubed the wiring then wire lumed it all for a clean look. Even took the time to run the ground wire inside the light housing for moisture protection and used dielectric grease on all the conections for added protection. Even all the mounting holes matched up great.

I'm very happy with them and love the look and 6" coverage.

I see you're also a fan of the Tough Stuff Protectors. Me too. I love the door guards.
Oh, and the flares look great!

Those look great. I am have been mulling over the thought of putting some on mine but now I think you just made up my mind. Just have to wait to get a little extra funds in the pocket. Looks like I might to put in some overtime in now.

Let us know how they hold up. I was just at a Jeepin event and saw a couple of sets of those and on both jeeps the front ones were all warped up. Kinda looked like the sun did a number on them.
