2 dr and 4 dr flares

Are the 2 dr and 4 dr fender flares the same? I have read this different ways and want to find out for sure if they are the same.

I have a 2 dr and I bought a set of flares from someone that has a 4 dr. The flares have not arrived yet so I can't compare them. I want to chop the ones I bought and keep my original ones for a "just in case" in the future.

Thanks for any help on this matter

I've heard the rear flares may be different, but can someone tell me what makes them different and can the rear flares be modified or retro fitted to work?

Nice!! So they are the same then? Or did you need to make any mods to get them to work?

Thanks

The fronts are the same, the rears very slightly in that the front of the flare has a sharper angle due to the rear door. As mentioned above I dont think the difference is enough that you couldnt rather easily fit the 4dr flares to the back of your 2 dr with a little creative work.

I thought I would update this thread as I have installed these 4dr flares on my 2dr, so anyone who might search and find this can have an answer.

The 4dr flares fit perfectly on a 2dr with absolutely no modifications or fabbing of any kind. They simply install right on. It was a piece of cake.

I know the plastic flares are slightly different and I think every steel and plastic flare company out there sells a 2 and 4 door version. I can say for sure that on ours they are not interchangeable.

I no longer work with Warrior. I am now working with The FIRM.

Aftermarket ones I dont know anything about. I was referring the the stock take offs only. I bought a set of stock flares that someone took off there rig.

I should have clarified that in my post, my information was for stock take offs only.

Thanks
