No man, you definitely have stock flares. TJ flares allow you to stay legal, while rocking a ton of extra wheel well room, especially in the rear.

Here's a couple pics of mine for comparison. The first pic is the day I bought it, with stock flares. The tires are damn near rubbing on flat ground. Now look at the second pic. Check out all that extra room!

I'm running the Rugged Ridge 7" ones to cover the tires completely. That's the law here in UT and I don't much care for hassles w/ the fuzz or having to borrow small tires from someone to pass the safety inspection every year. If your state's laws are different then you could just get standard width TJ flares. You'd still be able to open up the wheelwells, but the tires would stick out like they do now, giving you the more aggressive stance.
