I bought a set of TJ flares. Set them up against the fender, marked where the cuts needed to be, then cut along the line using a plasma cutter. Used a grinder to smooth and finish.

A set of extra wide flares may prove better
will also help keep mud from flying in when you have your windows down and or doors off.
I have an 87 wranger with 31x10 on them and they work great with no lift.whith stock the weels stuck out more and i would get showered
with mud.Now less mud on me and more fun.Just one thing to add want help with the splash over so go slow and drive hard.

Honestly, I'd love to run wider flares for just the reason you mention. But I'll be damned if I can keep normal width flares from getting discombobulated in the rocks. Can't imagine what I'd do to extended flares.
