Tj fender flares on a Yj

I am toying with the thought of putting on tj exteded fender flares on my Yj. I have seen other Yj's with it and it looks pretty cool. Anyone done this before? And if so, can you give me some insite on what needs to be done. Thanks Porkchop.

So was there any cutting or relocating of the mounting bolts?

Check that out and see if it helps you. The best part of the TJ flare swap is that you cut out about an inch of your wheel well to allow for bigger tires and still keep a clean "factory" look.

Speaking of tj flares, is it possible to take the actual flares from a tj and mount them on a yj? If so, what mods would have to be done to the body? Obviously, cutting away a bit of the body, but would you have to drill any new holes?

Yes...just use #10 self-tapping sheet metal screws to secure the flares to the body.

dont know if i like the idea of that. seems like they could pull out under presure. maybee wrong but i would prefer bolts. when i put on the xenon flares i used stainless nuts and bolts with washers for a secure mount.

I used bolts with my YJ Xenon flares too....but I ditched them and went with TJ flares and used self tapping screws and have not had any problems with the screws at all.

It would take quite a bit of force to pull them out if you can pull them out at all.

I am confused!

Isn't this section supposed to be for fabrication, not modification?

Shouldn't this original message be in something like General Offroad????
