But the op hasn't cut any metal so its a moot point.

Misunderstood you i guess. Sorry man!

Here's mine. I got extended flares off a guy on craigslist. It was a pretty easy job. Hardest part for me was lining them up because I wanted to keep the lip underneath to protect the tires from sheet metal.

Would I really have to trim the wheel well openings on the tub? Not that I don't mind doing it, I just don't want to unless it would look bad if I didn't.

You're gonna have to trim sheet metal. I used a jigsaw with a bimetal blade. And pull the inner fender well mud guard thing. You can put it back in after but I just laid some rubberized undercoating down. Except on the driver's side. I kept the plastic that covers the fuel filler hose.

I don't believe his Jeep is a YJ, looks like a TJ, and that's why he didn't have to trim???

His jeep is a YJ. Look at the windshield frame. The gas filler is just put where they put tj gas fillers. I'm assuming he just cut the tj flares to mount flat to the body an didn't cut metal. But I could be wrong.
