CJ front Flares on YJ?

Can I put CJ front fender flares onto my 88 YJ front fenders?
Any issues as far as fit or anything else?

Thanks in advance...

Lido

Because i hate how the flare continues beyond the contour of the opening and across the bottom of the jeep for an extra 6" or so. Just want the flare to end at the base of the wheel opening--that's why...

Why not put Tj flares on your Yj? thats alot of people do and it gives you more clearance and it looks good too.

I'm with you. I hate that extension also. I have a 94yj. What was Chrysler thinking. Oh wait they weren't thinking at all or they wouldn't have put it on there.

Yes they do have a fender for the yj that looks like the tj style. But for me the fit at the very front edge isn't close enough. Look around on line for pics. you'll see what I mean.

I dont mean a tj style yj flare I mean cutting the stock fender to fit actual tj flares. Why not just remove the flare extension though? Just pick up some rocker rails and cover up the holes.
