Cherokee Bushwacker flares.

Can you get Cherokee Bushwacker flares to fit the Commander? Looks like you can get them to fit very easily

If you know someone with a Cherokee measure the stock fender wells and compare them to the commanders. I think the front would work but the rear might be another story.

I use to own an XJ I doubt they would fit. Bushwacker flares are notoriously rigid. So any differences in body shape the flares wouldn't flex enough to fit them on the Commander.
But pick up a set an giver a try Maybe a heat gun would help.

The rear XK flares are 2 piece and the XJ's are 1 piece so I think it would take some modification. There are other brands of flares for the XJ that are cheaper and more flexible that might work better. I think Rustys makes some flares that are supposed to be really flexible. I have an XJ, I could get measurements but I work the holiday and all weekend and might not get to it till next week.
