I am wondering what year Jeep started installing fender flares on the CJ's. Anybody know? I have seen some CJ 8's without them and most with them. I thought they started in 1982 when they went to wide track axles but my 1981 has them so not sure. With my tires I am not sure if they would be needed if it didn't have the wheel spacers the previous owner installed in it. Of course I am debating switching to wide track axles when I put a Ford 9" in the rear (which would have already happened if OX locker could work out a way to make it work).
