Hope this helps some... these are a lot bigger than I expected and even had to trim the rear flare to make them work... Yes thats a custom knife job.

Just needs a lift now...

looks great man!!!

i just moved up from my rubicon rims to some different ones too

from this

to this

did you get all five of your rubicon rims? i had a hell of time trying to find a fifth one for my set. i never actually found one so i had to use a stock yj rim for my spare

Hocke230 05-14-2012 01:49 PM

I only got four too... Been trying to craigslist the 5th but honestly debating just leaving it off and leaving a tire patch kit in the trunk instead.

I only have about 2-3k of tread left on these tires before they need replacing too. Just glad that they are finally on the rig.

What are the new wheels you went with, they look good.. 5x5 pattern ?

Did you get the spidertrax adapters too?

busemans 05-14-2012 05:52 PM

no, they are 5x4.5 off of a tj rubicon. they are eagle alloy rims with 265/75/16 bfg ATs. my favorite non street tire

hte guy got rid of his stock moabs too because i asked about them to get my spare for the other set, ha ha ha. i ran with no spare for over a year and just kept a plug kit in the jeep. but i was going back and forth about taking the jeep on some long road trips so i put the spare back on recently. i will probably remove it again since i am not going to take the yj to north carolina next month because the wife and kids would not be comfortable in it for 2 to 3 days of driving

Great look, like this a lot!

Any lift or trouble with rubbing?

Hocke230 05-15-2012 01:40 AM

No lift at all. I had some slight rubbing in the rear and cut into the fenders to alleviate that.

I get a little rubbing when I cut the wheel either direction but that as to be expected

Huh??? At what point did a car come into discussion in this thread? Maybe you are wanting him to post pics of the Jeep? LOL

jonthomas 05-20-2012 12:47 PM
