I don't know about the junk yard, but you WILL have to cut and drill your fenders to put them on your YJ.

Simple answer NO you will have to drill new holes to mount atleast. If you are not opening up the wheel wells then why do this?

A 89 yj with a 4.0 aw4 sye out of an 92xj. Now the hard part is done time to get it up in the air just a bit. Working on 8.8 with 3.73 and lsd for the rear. and new D30 hp with 3.73 .
For those who have not figured this out I'm old school but can handle the new too.

Thanks for the info just looking into it guess I dont need this mod not planing to run any larger than a 33x12.50, and Im not looking to trim the body, Ive got enough things to keep me busy without this as a project.

I run 33x12.5 and the flares (along with the cutting) gave me a good amount more room for flexing.

Do you just want them for a different look then ? theres really no point in going through the effort of putting them on if you arent going to make the wheel wells bigger at the same time. If you just want wider flares that bolt on there are plenty of aftermarket flares available that bolt right up to the yj without any cutting or drilling.
