Tj Flares On A Yj?

howdie once more....

Got a question about fender extensions (or flares)
Will a set of tj flares fit on a yj? how do you install them, do I have to drill in the iron of my Jeep, or do they atach to the inside of the flares?

Hope you guys can give me an answer pretty soon, 'cause i can buy a set of fender flares second hand, and don't know how long they will be available, these things go faaaaaaaaaaaast since they cost a lot of euros when bought new.....

Thanx in advance!!!!

You'll have to do some serious cutting, but I see it alot. They make a nice mod for the YJ if you want wider flares.

What do you mean by cutting?
Cut the flares or cut my jeep?

The TJ's have wider openings front and rear, so you will have to cut the sheet metal quite a bit to get them to fit. I don't think they are any wider though. The reason most people swap them is to fit a larger diameter tire in there without rubbing. They will give you enough clearance so the 31's don't rub anymore.
