CJ-5 Fender Flares - 35x12.5" - 4.5" Lift - Recommendations

It's so hard to see what flares will look like with a specific setup... I need some recommendations for my 79 cj-5, stock axles with 4.5" lift & 35" x 12.5" Tires. First off what width should I be looking for for my tires. Second I don't want to trim my wells... I'm not sure if a pocket style will look good ok my 79... What would you recommend I look at...?

Here's my Jeep web page if more details are needed: http://elkhartservices.com/CJ5/


Thanks in advance,
Jerimiah

That depends on the local laws. In NH we asr allowed 1 inch of tire beyond the flare so with a 12.5 tire I have to go 6" flares. I really like the look of the tube flares and am starting to design and fab mine before the spring thaw. It all depends on your taste. You look and drive it everyday so it has to satisfy you. I was gonna go with pocket style but I saw a pic of a CJ with tube style and that was it thats what I am doing. Good luck cause this is the hard part. Figuring things out.

Real nice looking Jeep!

What do you have on there now (It almost looks like you cut the stock ones, they look to be flat - at least the front fender(s). As well, yours actually look good that way...)?

I have Xenon flares on my CJ7 and I'm VERY happy with them. However, Quadratec only lists the 4" flares. If you go to 4wd.com you will find the same thing in 5", that's what I have. They cover my 31x12.50's just right. I love them, they are alot more flexible than others I've seen.

Your Right, the 5" looks perfect. I assume that series flares don't require any cutting of the well well?

The bushwackers do look purty good on a cj5 to me even though they won't endorse that they fit. BTW what suspension are you running and what kind of wheels are those? I bought my cj with the same rims and I need one for my spare.

I have the REE 4.5 lift with 33x12.5x15 tires and the TJ flares. They cover my tires and keep most of the mud off of the sides.
