Unhappy ...I WANT THESE FLARES!!! Anyone? ? ?

Can anyone tell me what these are??? This is EXACTLY what I want. I'm not all about cutting/welding my Jeep, and it looks like these are just some kind of panels that just go onto the body to make the cutouts look round, and then bolt on to the existing holes. I love this because not only is it probably cheap, but I can revert to my stock flares if I want....help!!!

I second this. You could probably build them yourself

I don't know where you live, but those would NEVER pass here in Mass. They tried to give me a hard time for my tires sticking out 1.5" beyond the stock flares on mine until I showed them a photocopied page from the state trooper's manual... The law is so poorly worded, the guy just passed me.

I wish the pics werent blocked for me at work!!!

Edit: Just looked on my phone

never seen those before...like said above, i'm sure you could measure and build something yourself. You could even just get the specs done and have a metal shop cut something out for you.

Looks like a poor man's Bushwacker flares..Definitely home made.It looks like nothing more than flat pieces of trimmed hard plastic screwed in the body.That jeep needs to be lifted to avoid ripping those off under any flex .

I have seen that Jeep before on this or the other forum. IIRC, the owner made those himself. I think the thread said he runs them in the summer wheeling season to preserve his flares. They do not look too hard to make using your stock flares as a template.

I saw the exact same thing the other day in the parking lot. Sexy looking for sure! but they aren't flares, they just fill the holes and from the looks of it hinder your clearance even more 0.o

Those are custom. I've made a pair similar to them a couple months ago. Didn't come out perfect but good enough for a first try.
Don't really have a good pic of them finished
