True 5" Fender Flare for TJ

Do any of you know of a factory shaped 5" fender flare on the market? I have a '98 TJ Sahara w/ 33 X 10.5's and the OEM flares are lacking about .75". I've looked all over and haven't had any luck, lost $80 sending back some 6 inchers I didn't care for. I'm considering some Xenon flats, can I cut them down?
Thanks for any advice!

Cut the 6" ones down or make your own. There is no 5" fender flare.

I'm pretty sure the Rubicon flares are the swame width as the Sahara flares he has, both are wider then stock.

Thanks guys, yes the Sahara's flares are wider than other models. Looks like I'll be trying my hand at cutting down some 6" flares. I may try to set my tires back in by going with a 4" backspace on my wheels, I'm currently running 3". On the other hand I may just leave 'em as is and try to get numb to slinging winter crud up & down the sides of it! I don't know if I can get used to that...
