any one know source for these ?

I am building new wheelwell boxes for the rear of my yj in the near future that go almost to the top of the body sides. I will have to rig up a homemade makeshift metel brake for this.....
I would rather buy them if it makes financial sense.
Anyone know somewhere that makes them...

Thanks for the response , but in my haste i see i wasnt clear on what i was doing...
I am replacing the entire rear wheelwell with the top almost even with the top of the body so i can enlarge my wheel opening to stuff the tire more.
Just like Jp magazine used in their whole "no lift on 40's wrangler", then do mention M.O.R.E., but i cant find them, maybe they stopped making them.
Just looking if someone makes them so i dont have to try not screwing them up.

Ah, ok. I thought you meant storage boxes. In that case, I think fabbing your own would be more cost effective. Use some posterboard to mock up what you want for a template, and get some 18g or 16g steel and cut it out. You can use clamps and some angle iron to make the bends, or find a fabrication shop in the area to make the bends for you.

Instead of poster board, use foam bard for picture mounting, more rigid, weighs less and is easy to cut. Do you have a steel supplier? they can cut and bend it for you. My local place charges $5 per cut and $7.50 per bend for 10 gauge steel which is overkill for an inner fender well. I would also tack in or have some one roll in some bends to stiffen the assembly as it needs some rigidity because your cage mounts to it. Or, you can weld some angle iron that wraps the corners to stiffen it. Actually if you can source angle iron cheap enough, you can build a frame out of angle iron and weld in the sheet metal to it and you don't even need a brake or have it bent. 3/16x1.5in would be more than enough and runs me about $10 for a 20ft stick of it.

I can't get past the title "1994 Jeep Wrangler TJ - No lift Wrangler, Part 1".

TJ's started in 97.

Hopefully they are doing some sort of YJ/TJ combo.

Editors miss things. I love how a 1" body lift and lift shackles is a no lift for 40" tires.
I have waggy springs and 36" tires so an honest 2" lift with no body lift and I am in process of highlining my hood for the front and I will most likely pick up a 120mm mortar can to build my inner rear fender tops out of.
