Re: I need an article on installing TJ flares on YJ
I used a jig-saw as well with fine metal cutting blades...cuts smooth and goes through the body like butter. Don't just place the flares where they 'look good'...place them according to the body. When I did Jeepskate I, the TJ gas filler dictated the placement of the flares, so I had to mount them forward on the body like CJay did. When I did my CJ-7, I placed them based upon where the front edge of the wheelhouses comes into play...there's very little metal that you can trim there...the rear edge of the flares ends up right around where the seam is between the side panel and the rear corner.
