Extended Cab is different than Long Bed. So, what you are saying is a Bison Extended Cab Rear Flare will fit or might fit a Z71 CCLB?
No, the Extended Cab IS a Long Bed. It has an identical long bed to your truck.

There are 3 configurations of these trucks:
ECLB - Extended Cab Long Bed
CCSB - Crew Cab Short Bed
CCLB - Crew Cab Long Bed

The ZR2, Bison package, and flares are offered on the Colorado ECLB and CCSB...

Adding "longer CV joints" doesn't necessarily mean you are adding width to your track, especially when you are also lifting the truck. To add width to the track you need to change the wheel offset or extend the lower control arms.

Edit: The ZR2 has a wider track than Z71 because it has longer LCA's and a longer rear solid axle, not because of longer front CV axles...

It sounds like someone is feeding you bad information, because the AEV flares are wider than OEM ZR2 flares, wider than OEM standard flares, and definitely wider than no flares...

Out of all the flares out there, the widest you will be able to get before requiring custom fabrication is going to be Bushwackers...but I would recommend against those because they will likely need trimming and won't line up with/match your AEV bumper as nicely, plus they only offer the style with fake mount bolts: After market ZR2 fender flares

Of course the rear AEV flares designed for the long bed, which you need are currently sold out...I recommend ordering the AEV flares and using these as a temp solution:
Plus, if for some insane and highly unlikely reason the AEV flares don't provide enough coverage, then you can simply adhere the rubber extensions to them.

CV joints will not change how far the tire sticks out, your upper and lower control arms plus the wheel size and position determine that.
