Flat Fender Flares

I’m sure this question has been asked here before, but I tried to search the forums, and it brought up a bunch of random threads.... I’ve got to replace my stock fender flares because they’re faded really bad. I want to do some flat flares, but the only ones I can find are really wide. I like the Barricade ones, but they’re 5.5” wide.... I’d like to keep the width about the same as the stock flares at 3.25” wide. Any ideas?

Cut your existing flares and repaint with krylon.

You can first try to cut them yourself.
I taped off my lines I wanted,
cut it with a small dremel,
used automotive door trim on the edges,
then bedline painted over them.

Also added 3/4" amber LEDs for turn signals, which fit perfectly in an existing hole on the metal fenders.

cut um, put that 75-150$ in the kitty for a mod with benefits.
tape a silver pencil to something and slide it right down the flare edge to get a perfect line, if your unsteady, cut short and sand down to it. if your unsure of width start wide, you can't put it back.

i keep small can of used motor oil.. i get a wet spot of that dark oil on a rag and rub it into the flares every couple wks.
takes 5mins but it's free.

I don't think anybody makes them like that. I'd like a set myself, but all the flat flares aren't even as wide as factory. I have the Rugged Ridge 7" factory look flares on mine. You could get a set and cut them like the other guys suggested.

Xenon flares are 4" wide and $500. That's 1/4" narrower than my stock Rubicon flares. I had them on my 01' Sahara and sold them to a member here for $125.
