Xenon Traditional Design Fender Flares

Hey Everyone,
Just curious if anyone has used the Xenon traditional design flares and how you liked the way they look and perform? Also kind of wandering what folks who are dedicated to the traditional look think about them?

Like many others, my favorite thing about a CJ is the front end. I wanted to go with stock flares, but with my new J20 axles I realistically need something a little wider. The Xenon flares are the closest I have found to a stock look that also add some length. I also like them because they are not ridiculously wide like some of the other aftermarket flares. At 5", they are only 2.5'' wider than stock, which should come close to getting my tires covered and not look too silly.

Here is the stock photo from Xenon. I have not found any others, so if you have some pics. Feel free to share.

I like the look of those. They still look factory. I'm not one for the flareless look or the ridiculously wide pocket flares. I'd say go for it!

Nice looking flares. You have to be a CJ afficionado (like us cool people here) to be able to tell the difference from stock and those Xenon flares. Nice choice! Put them on and give us some pictures!

They are nice looking flares, especially if your wheels actually stick out some, but imho if you are running narrow track axles they look kind of silly. I just mine off and put on the factory size. I thought it looked liked the flares were waiting for wheels to come out and play. The last photo is with the new stock size. Just my thoughts.

Although, they did give me a place to set a beet while I was working... Truth be told, if I hadn't already drilled the mounting holes, I would prefer to not have any flares.

Thanks for the replies and pics. I am gonna get these ordered and will post a pic once I get them installed. Though, that will be a while, as my Jeep is just now going to paint.

I love this look, and was running my CJ that way before my teardown and rebuild. But talk about mud, dirt, etc, getting everywhere! ha ha. Maybe not a problem for you with the NT, but not an option for me with my new axles. Want to sell me your old flares?

Thank you all for the pics, I think this is the way I will go too, if I ever get the cash for them. I imagine they are expensive, and probably not possible to find used.

They run about $320 or so. I picked up a set last month for $60 used. For the life of me I can't figure out why flares are so damned expensive. The pocket hole type are close to $500. Yet the stock ones run $80. Someones making a healthy profit!!
