tj here, but it's easier to drop the air around the front axle; weather that be underneath or out the sides. then do a whole pan

- tj has a 96" wheel base vs. wj/xj which has a wheel base of over 100"
it's going to take more than one sheet.

with that said do you take yours off road?

There was another guy on here who tried aeromodding the bottom of his cherokee, idk if he ever went through with it or not but the for the front axles he made an air dam to direct the air around. I suppose one could design an air dam for the rear with a slit in in the middle for the shaft
