tj flares

fellas

please excuse my ignorance, but a lot of people are talking about putting tj flares on my cj to prevent some rubbing. i want to put 35" on the beast and i have been told that a 4" suspension, 1" body and tj flares would fit it. now, for tj flares, i just buy some that i like and install them? i assume that there is going to be some sort of metal trimming to put them on, right? if someone could just give me a small explanation so when i go to someone, i don't get the deer in the headlights look, i'd appreciate it.

Re: tj flares

Check out these links. Yes you will have to trim metal and the front edge of the front fender will not quite line up right. Post pictures after you're done!

That should get you at least started. Also do a search on this board for TJ flares CJ and choose the option of "and" instead of "entire phrase", and this should get you some good info.

Re: tj flares



I'm sure the links will give you a good idea of what to expect.

The best job I have seen on fitting the front flares to the CJ fender was on Pirate Off Road (POR) where the guy trimmed the front of the flare to match the edge of the raised section of the CJ fender instead of bending or cutting the fender. I'd search there and see if you can find it.

On my CJ I used YJ front fenders with the TJ flares, a 4" lift, and a 1" body lift and fit 35s. I haven't gotten to fully flex it, but I think they may still rub a bit.

Re: tj flares

BMB, nice Jeep.

What lift combination and tire size combination do you have?

Looks like 4" lift and 35" tires?

Re: tj flares

Wow, I missed the bottom section of that post. I must be getting really old, or my excitement got the better of me.
