:confused: How to repair... New panels are $210 for each side and I'd rather not part with the money. Can different flares be used that will allow me to cut out stock lips. Could I just cut out lips and weld in sheet metal flush with body and install stock flares, or is this a no no?

TJ flares might give you a wider opening...

TJ rear flare should work great.

There is also the Bushwacker Cut-Out flare, but they are a little more costly. I like the look, but if you want the least cost. Find a set of faded TJ flares and paint them with Fusion Satin Black plastic paint. That will restore the color, and make them like new.

Either will require you to cut out the metal in the area that is rusted so you should get away with it OK.
