TJ Flares

Well i finally got my tj flares done a few days ago so i thought i would post up a couple pics

Cuttin the front fender



Back wells cut... See where I use to rub




The tj flares were all sun faded so i took a heat gun to them
Before...



Halfway...


Done...



Rear installed... Not done with the heat gun yet... 33s look a little more comfortable in there




All finished pretty simple mod and love the way it looks...





Thanks for looking let me know what you think ... LONG LIVE THE YJ

Looks like you took your time and did a great job.

Your limited slip differential sucks.

dumb question..why put the tj flares on, clearance?

Sometimes the road less traveled isn't a road.

Nightcrew, i guess :)

Exactly, it adds some clearance to the front and a LOT to the rear.

TJ flares are a great way to keep a stock look and allow more room. they are about 2-3 inchs higher in the read and i think 1-2 inchs in the front. they allow you to run a bigger tire without doing something that some would concider overboard like tube fenders. that and they are cheap.

Thanks I guess tj flares are on my list now. Definitely cheaper then getting rear tubes.

I use to rub my rear well with my 33s at full flex no fender flares on . Now that the tj flares are on and i cut out the spots that had to be cut , at full flex dont come close to rubbing . Same with the front too. Plus i like the way they look . Def a cheaper alternative to doing the tubes .
