Fender Flares for my 93

Hello all! I purchased this jeep a year ago and am working on doing a few things but am unsure what I currently have on there.

I am doing the roller paint job and in doing so I would like to get some rock sliders. My front flares however are combined with the side steps and look like so:




I want to get rid of my front flares and put some sliders on but I'd like to keep my rear flares. I like the style of flare that doesn't combine and go down the rocker panels. I like the TJ style or CJ style. Make sense? I haven't measured but am guessing they're 7" wide. I do live in utah and need to cover the width completely. Technically I'm about 1" shy of covering the whole wheel but it passes inspection.

When shopping for front flares for a YJ they all roll into the side step/rocker panel like I already have. The CJ/TJ flares are the style I like. Would those work best?

Or what about a CJ front flare? It doesn't have the turn signal which I am ok with. Would they fit though?

I have read some thread that they TJ flare will fit with some modification...how much? I'm just not sure how much since I'm not really sure if my fenders have been modified by the PO. They don't look like they have but this is what they look like now:


Will the CJ fit? I like the idea of no turn signal and how simple they look but not sure if it is way off on size?

Thoughts?

It looks like yours have been cut for TJ flares already. Look at the pics in this thread:

Ok so then it sounds like a TJ flare would fit perfect. They didn't have many front flare pics, more so rear pics. Can anyone confirm that for sure by looking at the pic above or do I need to take another pic? Just want to purchase some flares for the front and then build some sliders!! Thank you for the help guys. Those TJ flares for the front look the same as my rear ones so they may be decent for now.

What you have now are stock flares with the step extension. Going to TJ flares will require tub cutting to get them to fit correctly. I too looked at CJ flares, but opted against them because the turn signal wouldn't fit correctly or look "right" to me when done. I opted to trim my front flares and leave the backs original when I put on my slides.

Would the cj flares require cutting? I wouldnt use a turn signal probably which I'm good with. Or does anyone make a flare that just covers the wheel and doesnt extend into making a connection with the steps and for a YJ? I'll post some more direct pics in a bit.

The steps are a separate piece, you need YJ Flare extensions. If I ever put those side steps on my Jeep you can have my extensions.

YJ flare extensions don't allow for rock slide installation which is what the OP is going after.

They are seperate pieces but they connect together obviously and don't look right when they're not together. If I get rid of the steps then the front flares will look awkward.

Here are a couple pics. Virgin fenders or not? I can see some cuts just not sure how they would look to make tj flares fit...the current flares by the way are about 6" wide.

If they're 6" wide, then they're aftermarket direct replacements of the factory flares. I agree, then flare looks stupid without the extension or step, UNLESS, you trim them. Like this maybe?



Not perfect, but not bad either. I really want to go Bushwacker pocket fender flares in the future.

Thanks. I debated long and hard on what to do. It's a thing with me. I don't cut until I'm absolutely sure of what I want to do. I cut the flares right where they start to curve, then fit them with a couple screws and marked where they had to be trimmed to lap over the slides. They came out pretty nice, but eventually they'll become Bushwacker pocket style fender flares. As soon as the Mrs opens the coffers and chokes out $500.
