Bushwacker cut out flares

Anyone out there running bushwacker cut out flares or pocket flares on their cj? Or anything similar (Xenon) you would recommned? I want to get rid of my 2" body lift and retain the clearance for 33" tires. I have 3" of suspension lift and a 2" body lift now. Thinking of using a Daystar 1" body lift along with cut out flares to both lower the jeep and gain more tire clearance. Any suggestions appreciated.

Re: Bushwacker cut out flares

I plan on having the bushwacker flat top flares this week. I just traded somebody here on the board. I sent him a set of the TJ xenon's. I've been looking for a used set for a long time. I plan on flat fendering the front also. Another guy in our club has 4" susp. lift with 38s. so you should be good to go if you got the bushwackers.

Re: Bushwacker cut out flares

Here is the CJ that jersey was talking about. The only place those tires rub is on the inner fender but that is getting fixed since the tub is being replaced.



Can someone please bring me a hammer my 33's just ate my fender again. Damn i need more lift.

Re: Bushwacker cut out flares

Ya know WILL, you've got me thinking about what else I could make my flares out of.....

It's all a state of mind, and if you don't mention the state of my mind, I'll be happy to overlook yours!

Re: Bushwacker cut out flares

I run Bushwacker Cutouts on my '84 Toyota. I like the look of them but if you are serious into wheeling where you might catch them on something (i.e. trees, rocks, tires, etc.)don't use them. They are rigid and break easily. They would be great if they were made of a rubber instead of plastic.

Re: Bushwacker cut out flares

Maybe I need a set of Xenon wide flares for a TJ? I've got Xenons and they are very flexible urethane. Tough like a rubber tire. Just not a big enough opening at the rear wheel well, in particular at the back.
