Fender Flares

Im looking at new ones. I like to see what you have and did you have to do any trimming? What brand you have with a pic if you can. I really wish i could go back to YJ style flares but I cut my fenders out

This is what we did to our first YJ:



And this is what I did to our current YJ:


1996 White ZJ
1987 Maroon YJ (sideways build)
1996 Forest Green XJ

They are. We went with the Rugged Ridge knock offs at first, but they were crap with a capital C.

I didn't HAVE to trim the fenders to get them to fit at first, but when I went to 33's I had to trim so the tires didn't rub.

How about a set of the rubicon TJ flares or even some 6" TJ flares?

I have some 6in tj flares been on the jeep ten years. They are boxy looking just time for a change. I like the look of jschulz1720 Jeep no sure about the flat fenders on my jeep.
