I would doubt it. They don't make a piece for the XJ or ZJ so I doubt there gonna make a front lower bumper piece for the WJ. The Iceland's don't have a front lower bumper piece either.

Idk how that is gonna look because the front flare looks real bulky at the end and it stops abruptly, it doesn't look tapered. How will that look with a stock front bumper...

Do you think we need to relocate the windshield washer fluid bottle to install these flares?

Not gonna lie, I'm kinda disappointed in the flairs. 4" lift and 33's could have been done with trimming. I was hopping for a little more tire to fit. Maybe my expactations were to high. That being said I hope they release some flat style flairs.

Does the Bushwacker ZJ flare stop abruptly as well?

They said on Facebook that they designed them to work with both stock bumpers.

Here's a pic in this link. The ZJ flares, just like the XJ flares stop at the bumper. I have seen quite a few ZJs and XJs on the trail with bushwackers and never thought they looked odd not having a piece hanging down onto the front bumper.

I really dig them. I, like others, just hope they aren't too pricey. I'd say the most I'd want to spend on these is about 400 bucks. Fingers crossed.

I doubt it, I still had mine in for a while with the Iceland flares. The problem isnt coverage from cutting a bit of the body out for flares. the reason I removed mine (as well as other WJ owners) is that they are in the way when you wheel. You will catch your tire on it and destroy motors, wiring, and the bottle.

BTW-Here is a pic of WJ2000's Laredo with Iceland Flares and a stock bumper. The BW's may work with a stock bumper, but they will likely have the same overhang. Flares are designed to increase body width for tire coverage. Altough they could narrow it down, it would make the flares look really funny if they landed on top of a wider aftermarket bumper.



Get the BW's if you like them, it will just influence you to get an aftermarket bumper more quickly.

I saw them in person at the Vendor Display. They look ok, but really are only good for more tire coverage with a LITTLE more clearance. Perfect for the guys with smaller tires. I'd rip them off in no time. No pics, I lost my camera.

On their Facebook page they said they are doing flares on a WJ with a stock front bumper this week.
