Exclamation Fender Flares

Does anyone make 6" fender flares that follow the contour of the 89YJ rear fender? From what Im looking at it seems most of them you either cut your fender or black out where they slope toward the rear.I am Lifted both susp. & body so tire clearence isn't an issue. I was hoping to find ones that follow the wheel well from front to back.Is this because most are for JK's? Thanks for any help.

I ordered soome TJ flares to take care of my rubbing on the rear. Yes you probably have to cut the fender well some I'll find out when they get here. I would really like the Buschwacker Flat Flares 6" wide they look great but most places $450+ so it wasn't an option right now. I'll get some pics of the TJ flares going on and set em up here so you can make a better decision. They should be in this week.

xenon easy flares follow the body, I believe most flares that are made for the yj except pocket and flat panel do.

Thanks for the info roedyrob, after long hours on the web I thought that they were mostly tj style.Jokerchief I can't wait to see, its great when you can see it on the same year and model.The costs can be prohibitive on some 450+ seems high for some molded plastic, I dont care what fancy name they say its made of, basically molded plastic with a few exceptions.I sent you a PM earlier on manuals. Thanks guys

I ordered the rear TJ flares from RockRiders for $57 shipped. They were actually $19 each shipping was $19 no taxes charged. We'll see what they looklike and how they install I'll take some pics ad get it up here.

Ruged Ridge, Crown and Bushwacker all offer factory style flares in a 6" or 7".
I went with a set of Bushwacker 6" TJ pocket flares I picked up for next to nothing. I haven't trimmed anything on mine, and I think they look not too bad.
I'd post a pic, but all mine are too big to upload.

I have xenon 6" flares that my dad put on in 94-95. Going to reinstall them tonight or tomorrow. I wish I wasn't a dumbass and cut them when I was 18(young, dumb, full of.....) trimmed them with a dremel when I went SOA back in 02. They still look decent though. Ill post some pics.
