Flares refer to the fender flares. TJ Flares are, obviously, fender flares on TJs. Desirable for CJ owners because of increased wheel travel due to the cutting of fenders on a CJ to make them fit.

I'm boycotting sigs. If ya wanna see what I have, check my profile.

Re: What are TJ flares? (I\'m stupid)

ok, I think I'm getting somewhere... so is there a design difference so much that TJ's allow better wheel travel on a YJ?

The fender opening on the new TJ's are larger than on the older YJ or even CJ models. When running 35" tires or larger on the older jeeps, the fender can get in the way. By cutting the fender larger and attaching the TJ flares, you can keep the nice clean look and run larger tires.
