Aftermarket fender help

So I just bought a 90 YJ. The guy I bought it from only had it for about a month. The previous owner I guess had messed up the front fenders and took them off.

I want to get some aftermarket fenders. But I can't seem to find any that don't require modification to the stock fenders. I really don't want to have to buy replacement stock fenders and after market and modify them. Does anyone know of any front fenders that don't require stock fenders.

I have looked at all the junk yards around me and can't find any used fenders either.

Thanks

Buy some tj fenders. More clearance and look better. Just cut the rib on the back of them so they sit flush on the body. Some sheet metal screws and fender washers and your done.... We'll at least in the front. Rear require body trimming, but they look clean when installed.

Are we talking about fenders or fender flares?

Front TJ flares will fit a YJ fairly easy, but the back requires a little more work.

I'm sure that TJ fenders will not fit on a YJ without modifying where they mount to the grill and possibly also to the tub.

I have not come across any flat fenders fenders that do not require using the old inner fenders and I looked at a ton of parts when I was working on my rebuild.

agreed I think he is talking fenders themselves, if your looking for zero modification and stock fenders your options are eBay, quadratech, morriss4x4, or craigslist. If yu want flat fenders I have not found any that don't require a DIY application
