Fender flares

Does anyone know if fender flares off of a "CJ " will fit a TJ?

Bolt pattern / fitment?

THanks

not without modification.

also, they are a couple inches shorter which may look a bit odd

The old Bestop Highrock flares are the closest CJ looking flares for a TJ, IF you can still find a set on Ebay.

I know folks who have run the TJ flares on a CJ, bit I’ve not personally seen the opposite done. I’m pretty sure it is not a simple bolt on, but I’m sure you could make it work. Do you prefer the round styling of the rear CJ flare over the “squared off” TJ flares?

Smaller wheel openings on the CJ.

I could never understand why someone would want a chevy truck unless it was pre '72.

Going more square or "flat top" as I type. Lends to sliding on rocks better.

CJ's require removal of sheetmetal to install TJ flares. Doing the opposite won't work without adding sheetmetal to your openings.
