No Cutting Fender Flares

Hey all,

Im getting ready to paint my Jeep now that the weather has warmed up. Im thinking about getting some fender flares before I do, because Im running 31x10.5's and they stick out to far and mud slings EVERYWHERE.

Anyway, does anyone know of some decently priced fender flares that will cover the tires but that I dont have to cut my jeep's rear wheel area to make fit? I saw xenon's kit, but Im not sure if you have to cut the back or not. Plus, I wouldnt mind finding some "cheaper plastic" since these will probably get dinged/dented/cracked on the trail.

Thanks

if it says it for YJ im pretty sure it would not require any cutting of your tub... might need to drill new holes but thats about it.

i have the Xenon kit and they cover my 31s real well... almost to well makes my tires look tiny 0,0

I have found a couple, I think its rugged ridge or someone that gives the YJ a sort of TJ flare. Could be Bushwacker, cant recall the brand. Anyway, the front mounts just like the standard flare. However, you have to cut the sheet metal of the rear fender, then measure and bolt the rear flare on. Im not crazy about the idea of cutting my Jeep, so Im seeking an alternative.

I would also like to find out if there is a simple kit out there, I really don't want to cut fenders.

@jhumprey i think your talking about placing just TJ flares (OMIX YJ fender falres kit requires this)... which would require cutting rear... just go with YJ Pocket flares regular

http://www.4wd.com/productdetails.as...=0&partID=4456

those would be ideal.. all it says requires drilling.. basically new holes ^^ so you can screw down the flares
comes with 6" coverage its 4 piece set...

For a cheap alternative I went with "bushwacker" style flares I got from Ebay.

Do a search for "TAG fender flares". They are just under $200 and cover well. You do have to drill new holes but don't have to cut anything. I've had mine on for over a year now and they are holding up great. They seem a little stiff but do flex when rubbing against trees (I haven't rubbed any rocks with them... yet).

Like these:

I have a set of TJ flares that i will sale you. They are a aftermarket 6" wide set that looks like the stock flares. They are a direct replacement for the stock ones and uses the same hardware and bolt holes.

I took them off of my Yj a few months ago. They are in good shape. I will let them go for $120 plus shipping. I live in East TN just NE of Knoxville. Let me know if you are interested.

Here is a pic of them on my rig....

I am a Flat Style type of person and saw the same ones from Xenon, Bushwacker doesn't make them for a direct bolt on yet for the YJ (you can get the TJ but it's either cut or overhang).
And for over $400, not ready to drop the money yet myself, saving for that day.
