Fender Flares 7 inch

Does anyone other then Warn sell 7 inch direct fit flares without cutting up the jeep? All the ones I find say you need to cut the rear opening. I really have no desire to cut up the Jeep.

Here is some advise. Don't buy 7 inch flares. They will make you rig look like junk.

Well if thats the case. I guess I will have to sell my rims as well. I run 15x10 rims with 12.5 tires. I need 7 inches to to cover the tires. Why would a good set of flares look bad? Do they sag or warp?

almost all extended flares you need to cut the rear fender otu a bit cause they use the TJ style flare. they give more tire clearance which is usually needed with bigger, non-stock tires. rugged ridge sells 7" ones for 150, TJ or YJ front w/ TJ rear. there is also anotrher brand on quadratec that sells 6 1/2" ones for the same price.

I run 6" flares & love 'em. Some people like to go out all day and come back halfway clean. A day of trail running here with no top and the tires will sling mud, fill your jeep with mud, and cover you and all your passengers with mud in a hurry. Maybe you (slapahoe) are one of those mall crawlers that dont get off the street? Personally I think no flares look friggin sweet, but at the end of a day out wheelin made me appreciate the fact that oversize flares were the best investment I had made for te heep.

it'll be ok if an inch or two of tire hangs out beyond the flare.....

i think almost every jeep i pass on a daily basis has an inch or two hanging out......

-Erik <--- prefers tube fenders and comp cut rear with 14" of tire hanging out, w00t

that jeep's stance looks perfect. covering up the little bit of tire poking out would look strange and the aftermarket flares will never line up and be the exact same color as well as your oem setup....

Or perhaps my rig is being built for a more well suited rock crawler and dont want to worry about my pansy plasic flares.

My rig and Steve's(the thread starter) are not rock crawlers, the pics show that...
The flairs will keep the crap on the bottom of the rig, and they ARE required by law. They are the warn flairs.

This pic shows why I have them...
A day in the mud, the mud goes 1/4 the way up my spare...
No mud on the upper body or hood or windshield or inside the jeep...
