    I need more Flare

    Here is the situation. I have a 96 DI. I am running the 5" RTE lift with 35" KM2's on steel wheels with 4.25" backspace. I am getting some significant rubbing in the rear. I need to trim the fender up and want to add some flares. I know L8 carries some flares but they are almost $400. That's to much for my wallet right now. I tried the DII flares but it's not enough. I need something wide and long so I can have more than enough room for the tire. I'm pretty sure I'll end up needing to cut the doors, which I'm fine with but I want it covered up. I remember seeing the ECR discotech project but they wont return my emails. What do I do? Anyone have any suggestions or done anything with a flare designed for a different vehicle? Like a cherokee or similar?

    I used the DII flares on our 97 Disco and it worked perfect. I cut the doors, put some door gasket rubber inbetween the skin, and then sealed it all up. Did you trim the DII flares down or something. I had to cut A LOT to make them work right. You have to flip flop the backside. ie... right rear for left front on the rear door.

    However, I need something to trim the classic with and looking at the universal flare stuff on Summit.

    Wow great minds. I was thinking of posting something like that on my original post but I thought ya'll might have thought it was a bit nerdy. I thought of the cherokee flares also but they are almost as expensive as the rover ones.

    I forgot about flip flopping the rear pieces behind the doors.That too.
