Rear TJ flares for a YJ?

Is it possible to use rear fender flares for a TJ on a YJ? Looking for the rear only since I want to use 4" flares. Thanks for any help

Yes they will work. You will have to do some trimming. It is a good inexpensive mod for fitting larger tires.

TJ's have a larger wheel well opening, so you will have to trim metal from your YJ's. This is a good thing if you wish to run larger tires. I'm running them on the rear. Its a popular mod.

These were only $115 and they're steel and take a beating. Not much mud protection though.
