    I have a feeling the answer is no. But the only way to know aside from rolling the dice and ordering would be take some measurements of an xj and a zj amd compare.

    tnt lists two completely different sets for xj vs zj. AFAIK they are the only ones that do prefabbed pieces for the zj.

    the reason is because these ones in particular use a lip that runs on the underside of the floor .. the TNT ones do not do that and i think it is better for strength reasons... i realize they prob wont be a perfect fit im just wondering if the "Frame" is the same size on a zj and an xj as i dont have an xj to compare or measure.

    I have the ruffstuff ones on my rig and due to how bent up the unibody is the upper lip didn't even make it to the bottom of the floor. I can imagine with the amount of cutting and modding you'd have to do to get them to fit the zj you'd be in the same boat.
