Looks like the cheap trim they use to protect door edges.

The rough idea
Wanted to keep as much width as possible.So cut where the fender edge rolled.And wanted to keep straight line from front view.Tried to keep as wideas steps. Round edges (trim fits better) ,kept front line to match the grill line on bottom.

Man those are hot! Is it legal to not not have the sides of them? I wish I had a spare set so I could try those out on mine so I can switch them out if I don't like them. They make the jeep look like a 4 wheeler but more expensive. LOL

Can you take a few steps back and give us some full jeep shots? Different angles etc instead of close ups? Wonder how it would look like with TJ after market flares like bushwacker pocket style because they have a little more beef then the stock flares on my 98. Would suck spending all that money on the wackers and just cut them up.

Thanks , its just the roll door trim I picked up at O'Reilly's.It has adhesive in the grove already so it goes on quick ,DONT STRETCH IT TO TIGHT ,it will pull lose overnight ,which is not a good thing to see first thing in morning ,Personal experience.

I just did this to my Jeep. Took about an hour with a dremel to tape, cut, and sand everything. Came out AWESOME. looks really cool.

Definitely a good temporary fender system until I get some tubefenders
