Fender flares and window visors for ZJ

I have a 95 Grand Cherokee limited ZJ and I really want to make it look meaner. I think fender flares and window visors would give it a good look but I cant find any made specifically for ZJ's. Are there any other fender flares that would fit a ZJ with little or no modification? I really want to avoid cutting the fenders at all. Thanks for the help.

Quadratec is a little on the expensive side I've heard, but they are out there.

As far as window visors, do you mean the windshield or the window rain guards? Rain guards are available. i just got my set last Christmas. They might need to be ordered. As far as a windshield visor, as far as i know, most people who run them on a ZJ have customized one from a small truck like a Dakota or S10.

Not trying to be rude here but there is a discussion about rain guards near the bottom if you bothered to look. No fender flares without cutting.

What about the universal flexible fender flares? How good are they?

No one knows since it will look like crap. Some people have used wrangler flares and squazz used rain gutter metal but it all looks like crap. Squazz's is cool because it looks more mad max though. Really no reason to run flares unless your tires are wide enough to stick out and it's illegal where you live.

These flares will give you room to run large tires with a smaller lift. They are the only ones I would put on my ZJ because the rest look like garbage. http://notchcustoms.com/

second notch. They look good. I like the company and they seem to have good customer service. I'm on the wait list from the ZJ bumper...

Those notch flares look awesome! Almost like Iceland offroad flares. Hopefully they have better service then them though.

I'm on a really low budget, is there another direction that I could go without spending $500

I wouldn't worry to much about fender flares. Especially if you have stock tires. It will just look silly. Best spend the money on other things that would be useful.

I have another thread up about brush guards and side steps. I want to make my own but I don't know what type of tubing to use. Any suggestions?
