Spare tire carrier

I've got a 2005 rubi and am getting new wheels/tires this week. Got the tires on order and putting on 2012 rubi wheels. Got the adapters in to go from 4.5 to 5, but my question is about the spare. Do you need an adapter for it also to fit the new moab wheel?

Yes, you will need to adapt the STOCK spare tire carrier. Aftermarket tire carriers typically have 4.5" bolt circle (Wranglers) and 5.5" bolt circle (for CJs), they won't work.

One option is to buy an extra adapter and use that. You might have to buy a pair of adapters.

I cut off all but one stud and drilled and welded in new studs for the 5x5.

Thanks for the info! If I owned a welder or had access to one that would be nice, but unfortunately I'll just have to order a single

Call around to a local repair shop, garage, machine shop or body shop. For a few $ they would redo the studs.
