tj flares

i was wondering it anyone has swapped the tj flare to the cj. ive seen it done but i was wondering what people thought about....does it loose the classic look. or should i go with a bolt on bushy style.

I should be done with mine this weekend. They do look very different than stock. I'm doing it more for room than looks. I'll try to have some pics up by Monday.

With a little force they do, I never changed the light socket on mine.

Did you have to trim the OEM fenders at all for a proper fit? Any closer-up images?

I've done it to a CJ8

But for the front fenders I used YJ fenders with TJ flares.
I like the result very much

These are actually a YJ fender flare

I feel that they give a nice touch to a CJ
