Re: CJ - Incremental clearance gain to YJ,TJ Flares
TJ flares are the way to go. The rears are much larger than the YJ flares, while the front's are about the same. I measured a set of YJ rear flares against my CJ and they were about the same. You can use YJ flares to gain clearance in the rear, but you have to bend them a little and the top corners. Putting them on the rear is simple, just put them up there, mark them and cut away. The fronts are a little more difficult, but not hard. You do have to cut a few spot welds between the inner fender and the side of the jeep and then push the iner fender back. This allows you to cut the side of the body away so the flare looks somewhat flush. YJ flares are easier to find, but you can get TJ flares off of e-bay or this or other bbs's.
