Question

Hello everyone! I recently purchase a 1983
Cherokee Laredo. The old brute is in good
shape with the exception of the wheel arches
or fender flares, they are rusted out pretty
bad. I just found out the factory no longer
makes replacements. Does anyone know of an
aftermarket manufacturer? Original metal would be nice, but I would settle for fiberglass or plastic. I hope this doesn't mean another trip to the body shop.

IM pretty sure JC whitney has what your looking for. http://jcwhitney.com If they don't have it on the web site, be sure and get one of their catalogs. I remember seeing Grand Wagoneer and all types of replacement fenders for Jeeps.

Yup... you are correct. $79.99 for W/T front fenders... looked 'em up about a month ago for a friend...other fenders,too. Rear flares are there ,too

How hard is it to bastardize my Grand Wagoneer and put widetrack flare type fenders on? the front looks easy but the back might be tricky. would there be benifit in doin this? more tire clearance?

Why do you want to do that? I would think it would be a pain in a$$ to try and install the flares on the rear openings. Plus, if you don't have wide tires that stick out the sides, you will get no advantage by putting wide track flares on your rig.
