We present deeper Chandra images of the X-ray jets we have previously discovered in the quasars PKS 0208-512 and PKS 1202-262. The core and integrated jet of PKS 0208-512 have identical X-ray power law energy indeces 0.7, but we detect distinct spectral changes along the jet. We present detailed comparison to the HST and ATCA radio images, and interpret the overall SED in terms of inverse Compton scattering of the cosmic microwave background, in a relativistic jet close to our line of sight.
