Rear tube flares?

Anybody ever see rear tube flares done like the old CJ curved rear flares?

KMA Fabrication

KMA Fabrication built these custom for my LJ. Scott the owner can build them for a JK.

Those look cool. I'm about to go full corners, and it doesn't look like I'll be able to modify my current rear flares to work with the stretch and thought a ronded style might look OK, even with my fronts.

When I first saw this I thought WTF but then seeing those on the LJ I think you're on to something.

Looking forward to seeing this come together man!

KMA Fabrication hand rolled the flares in the LJ to match the 37" tires perfectly. It was bad ass. We did the front the same way. I will try and find more pics.

Let me see if my buddy in Highlands can make them... I am betting that he can.

Dude has skills.

He made my rear fenders... same kind of work, just bring it around a bit more.

There's a few more pics of my last LJ with the rolled fenders in this album of my old jeeps.

KMA Fabrication built it from the ground up. Scott stretched it, it had 14" coilovers up front with 14" Kings in the rear with progressive rate coils. He custom cut the hood and made the front fenders. Great work by a great Shop.
