If you study the configuration of the Cherokee flair you will see that it is trimmed just inboard of the body side. I have come to believe that Jeep used truck flairs the build the Wide Track body, they probably trimmed off the unwanted portion with a power shear. I simply can't believe they spent the money on new tooling.

Hi Dan! Long time no see! Hope all is well with you..

I also think AMC would not have retooled a new flair..

Interesting... I will have to hire somebody to do this swap, but will watch intently and try to document what happens.

I am sure I'll need some parts soon.. will be in touch! Jim
