Just look at stock flares and compare to the pics. Pretty easy to see what was trimmed.

johnnysaz77 looks good.

Storm27m I think most guys are using Satin black for the flares with good results. I took their advice and mine turned out great.

meyers Looks real good, I used that Krylon paint on my fender flares like 6 months ago and it still looks great.

Rogue Found this thread here on the new Jeep flares that have been cut; he did a great job:

Rogue Wolfen,
Mine came off fairly easily, even though they were caked on and the fasteners were a bit rusty.

03 Rubi,
I am going to check that out. I wonder if the RR 7" flares are dense enough to trim down like this without sagging? Anyone tried it? I just might have to be the first!

I saw a guy recently with a 2009 Jeep who cut the factory flares like this, and it looked like he had a set of $500 tube flares on there! It looked GOOD!

Rogue LOL. The Jeep has been clean three times since I have owned it.
1-Right after I bought it.
2-For the pictures in this thread.
3-Recently, when my co-workers complained after I sank it in a mudhole on the local WMA...

HyperBuzzin Looks good! Now ya just gotta get a little mud on the tires!!

wolfen That's sweet I was thinking of new flares but after seeing this I think a new cutoff wheel is in my future
depends on weather or not I can get the flares off without breaking the studs off.

03 RUBI Hey there Rogue, has the RR 7" flares for $160 and free shipping. I did a fair amount of research and they had the best price I could find. I just got mine installed and was thinking of cutting them. Post some pics when you do it OK

SPDNJOE That looks really good. Job well done !

Rogue Thanks guys!

I bought the Krylon spray paint at Walmart, and I think it is marketed as "Fusion"; it is designed for plastics. I cut them, sanded them from low grit to high grit, or rough to smooth, then sprayed them per the directions. No need for a primer. Looks 100% better than the gray faded flares.

Some pics:

InfernoGirl Thanks for the pics Rogue! That is one fine looking Jeep you have there!

catITguy Looks very nice!
01-30-2010 05:40 PM
JDsDream Looks great.
01-30-2010 05:35 PM
TJRP Can you post a close up of the fenders and tell me more about the Krylon. I need to do that.
01-30-2010 05:16 PM
Rogue I measured it all along the length of the fender, and then made a template out of cardboard. I drew a thick guideline with a black marker, and trimmed on the inside edge of the line.

Once cut, I had to sand the edges down from 60 grit to about 800 grit for painting. It looks good though. That Krylon plastic paint is good stuff.
01-30-2010 05:13 PM
harleyharv VERY nice, did you free hand it or make some sort of template?
01-30-2010 05:07 PM
Rogue Profile should be fairly well updated now guys! Thanks!
01-30-2010 04:57 PM
Rogue Thanks guys! I tried to score them and pop them with a razor knife, but they are too baked by the sun, so I broke out the trusty ole Dremel tool! I am seriously considering buying the RR 7" stock flares and trimming them down like this in the future to actually give me the proper coverage for those 33 x 12.50's.

G54 Nice job. That's one of the free mods I have planned for this spring.

BTW - fill out you Jeep Profile when you get a chance. You have a very cool looking rig there. Love the color too.

Pictures of 2002 Jeep TJ Fender Flare Mods

Here's the pics of my 2002 Jeep Wrangler TJ. My flares were gray, so I removed them to paint, and ultimately took a dremel tool with an HD cutoff wheel and trimmed them down for more clearance before I painted them with Krylon plastic paint... Tell me what you think!
