It's Your Jeep, Only Better

Rear Flare Mounting Plate, Pair, CJ-5/CJ-7 Mod Cut

The MetalCloak CJ5 ('72-'83) & CJ7 ('76-'86) Mod Cut Rear Flare Mounting Base Plates install easily and with only minor Body Modification, and provides additional strength to the vulnerable wheel well opening allowing bigger tires on a lower lift

Designed specifically as a mounting system for our Rub Rail, 4" or 6" Quick Release rear flares, the flare mounting hardware is built right in.

The Rear Flare Base Plate kit includes:
  • Driver & Passenger Base Plates
  • 18-8 SS Hardware Kit
  • Aluminum Flare Mounting Brackets
Note: Due to the age of the vehicle, CJ's can have previously unknown fitment issues. Most times all will be fine, but we never know until you try to bolt them on. Our products are designed for the best possible fitment, but, tubs may vary with age.

Note: If you have a CJ-5 between 1972 - 1975 You may experience fitment issues. The mounting plate overlaps, but does not cover or close off the "notch" at the top rail of the tub. Feel free to Contact Us, if you have questions or need clarification.
