M returning my 2013 JKU to stock but leaving the AEV Dualsport 2.5" lift on it. Do I need to run wheel spacers when I swap my stock 17's from my 2015 JKU to my 2013?

I would only be driving it for a few days until it's traded.

I couldn't tell ya. But I can tell you this. I just added some inch and a half springs (netted way more). and had to go with spacers on stock wheels due to the rear sway links slightly rubbing the wheel weights on the inside (rim lip) at the slightest angles. The front was fine.

You might have to slap one on and see, wheel that is.

Thanks for the info. According to AEV's site, the 2.5" lift doesn't require spacers for factory 17" rims. Hopefully that's accurate.

You SHOULD be fine, but just put them on, and check for rubbing especially in the rear at the sway bar links. If you have a tall floor jack you could even jack it up on one side at the frame to articulate it a bit, and check for rubbing again. But SHOULD be fine
