F150 wheels on 1989 Wrangler
I just bought my FIRST jeep (1989 wrangler) and was wondering if there are any adapters to mount wheels from a 1988 F150 4X4 to this jeep. I have WELD wheels that are no longer available and would like to keep them and use them on the jeep with larger tires. Any help would be great!

i have heard that some ford rims are the sme bolt patern if you have some laying around give it try

No, full size ford that year are 5 x 5.5" Your wrangler is 5 x 4.5" But they will fit cj's,suzuki samurai's, You would need adapters. Check this link out, you could probably shop around to find a better deal. Where in Ohio are you located? I hope to get back out there next year to muzzle load hunt. Ohio is a very nice place to live.

Thanks Scrambler1, I live about 30 miles southeast of Columbus in a small, one horse-town. I love Ohio but the midwest winters (hot and cold, hot and cold) totally wreck my sinuses!
Thanks again,

i would just go with the adapters as posted, you can also have your axle shafts changed to fit your bolt pattern, not really worth it to me though.

Great and thanks folks...first project will be an soa lift, hoping to lift the jeep about 8-10 inches and run 35 to 37" tires maybe. Not going to be a mudder but I have always had tall trucks and my jeep will be no exception! Thanks again everybody!
