New to JK here.. and wanting to swap wheels

Just bought a '11 Sahara Unlimited and wanted to throw my wheels from my 95 wranger with M/T wheels on it. was wondering, do I need wheel spacers and where do I obtain wheel spacers for the 33x12.50R15LT's wheels.. and can I even put them on the 2011 w/o having to do mods on the 2011...

You will need adapters which in turn will also act as spacers. I believe a YJ has the same lug pattern as a TJ which is 4.5x5 so you need an adapter that can do 5x5 to 4.5x5. You can buy these from various stores and eBay too

okay.. I may be a little dense.. so I'm looking at ebay right now and I see (SPIDERTRAX 1.25" WHEEL ADAPTER SPACERS 5X4.5 TO 5X5 87-06 JEEP WRANGLER YJ TJ)

so if I install these on my 2011 (5x5)unlimited I can then put on the wheels I have on my 95 wrangler (4.5x5).. from my understanding it would only work if I do the opposite.. very confused over here..

you'll need the 5x5 to 4.5x5 adaptors. depending on the backspacing on the wheels you may want a larger adaptor.
