Fender flares

Post by Mudders » Wed Feb 12, 2020 9:57 pm

Does anyone have photos of flares? Maybe XJ or TJ flares installed. I really would like to do some cut out flares before I put her up Forsale. THANKS Image

Why would you cut the fenders if you are going to sell?

Don't do it. They just don't look right.

They rub in the back.

Unless they are rusted out that's a silly reason to cut them off right before you sell it. You'll be better off leaving the sheet metal alone.

Note that you cannot easily put flares on the rear of a Wagoneer. The doors are in the way. There is some precedent for spliting the flare, part mounted on the door and the rest on the body, but that's a custom job involving a lot more than you'd want to invest in a car you're going to sell. Others have trimmed the fender steel without adding flares, to clear bigger tires, but that's not flares. Agreeing with above, it's not going to enhance your sale unless the fenders are severely cutting into the tires and the Jeep is not driveable. Just let the new owner deal with it as they like by changing the tires or cutting or whatever.
