Stock yj flares

Has anyone ever cut their stock flares? If so can u post pics? I'm thinking of cutting at least the rear a little cause previous owner put 31's on an all stock yj and I can't seem to find any tj flares.

Yeah I cut mine after seeing one in a pic. Easy to cut sand smooth I used the mold line as a guide. No pics handy here at work but later, works good stopped the rub.

Here is mine with cut flares. I just used the mold line as mentioned above and it was easy. I did a sloppy job though and I'll be cleaning them up.

Looks good. What's your plan for up front? When I went to put on my rock slides, the front flares was what had me going in mental circles for a while. TJ-Bushwacker-trim-TJ-Bushwacker-trim-.....

Eventually went with trimming. This is how my fronts turned out.

The fronts:



The rears:

I think I'm gonna go with the c&c fabrication tube fenders. One of my fenders is bent in at the lip where the flare attaches and the other has rust there so I'm just gonna order those

Can't go wrong with whole new fenders. Damn old ones are probably on their way to being screwed anyway lol
