Short answer: yes.
But...If you go off-road, your tires will probably rub your fenders under flex situations. A simple TF leveling kit ($130) will fix that, and your Jeep's factory rake, as well.
And why steelies? You a rock crawler? Pros: if they get bent, you can pound em out w/a BFH. Cons: They're heavy and they rust.
