I'v decided to rework my rear flares this weekend and update the original write up so that anyone following it will not have the overhang I got orginally. Special Thanks goes out to Johnboy68 for his excellent images and information on the rear fender well cuts. Stay Tuned.

Great write up!

I do agree with sparrows about that metal piece. I cut it to be above the fender lip as it definitely would have hit it and the point for doing the TJ flare for me was going to 35's. I did armor with a TJ cut but same principal, so hope you don't mind me posting this.
Metal cut out that Sparrow was talking about.

I wussed out and decided not to cut my tub when I did mine. Actually I have yj flares in the back and tj's in the front.


I got clear grill markers now. I like the tj flares.

Did you do it for cosmetic reasons or for clearance?

I'm thinking of just using the TJ rear flares, since it seems to be much tighter than the front. Was thinking that I wouldn't mess with the front at all (leave on the stock YJ front flares), but maybe I'm missing something.
