Have you installed jaguar pickups in a Jazzmaster?

I have.

It required significant routing.
I've done it too. I just shimmed the neck and raised the bridge for the extra clearance so that I didn't have to rout the wood.

The issue is string clearance, not the rout itself. You can either dig down or just raise the strings.
Did you put it in the neck or the bridge position? I had to route almost 1/4", IIRC to get it in the neck position.
