Default Proline Cherokee and fender flares?

So, ive got the 1992 cherokee body trimmed and working on the wheelbase to fit it and i cant help but notice all of these bodies out there with botl on fender flares (bushwacker pocket style). Was wondering if anyone has tried the SCX10 TR fender flares on the cherokee body? or if you have any idea of which pocket style flares would fit like the stock bushwacker pocket flares?

examples:

I was wondering how those pictures got in my post. I just posted the links.

Those flares posted Grizzly4x4 are sweet.

I think they will be too big. I had a summit and put the body on top of my scx10 chassis and it was huge.
