I have bfg m/t 33x11.5x15 with the stock yj fenders and a 4in suspension lift. The clearance in the front is decent but in the back there's about an inch without any flex at all. When I go wheeling or anything like that, the rear fenders rub. Sometime even if I take a turn fast the jeep leans and rubs. I was wondering if the bushwacker fenders are enough clearance or if I would run into the same problem. I wouldn't get the actual bushwacker, I'd get knockoffs but I assume they're the same size.

Search trimming for tj flares. You will find extra clearance back there.

The great uniting factor is that we are all jeepers at heart and are willing to help each other out even if its just a little. That's what the jeep wave is all about: community. The wave is the tip of the iceberg.

Tj flares will resolve the issue.

Another option is trim your current flares.

Flares that attach to you YJ fenders. The rear has a bigger arch and some metal trimming is required to install in a YJ same with the fronts.

Here's a little mock up of the difference in size. It makes a big impact when you stuff your tires.

They are the smittybilt tube flares for tjs. All tjs run the same inner line as this though its smittybuilt so the holes definitely don't come close to lining up.
