For anyone interested in running wheel spacers in their stock Rubi wheels/tires... here’s what it looks like.

All you need now is a half decent offset wheel(+12 and under)

Looks great...hard to imagine 1.5" makes that much of a difference, but it does

Looks great. So... I am really interested in how it effects your drive. Different? Better? Worse? In the rain and mud, does it throw more debris on the side of your JL? Did you check to see if there could be any warranty issues. Great color with the GCM by the way.

Could you post some pics from the rear, before and after?

I didn’t notice any difference in the ride quality. Right after installing them, I took a 200 mile trip on the highway and everything was fine. I didn’t have it in the mud yet, but I’m quite sure it’s going to fling mud up the sides. No idea about warranty.

They look great. Very subtle, but just that little bit of offset from the spacers gives it a totally different stance. There are multiple threads over the past few months specifically regarding spacers- pros and cons. I think the consensus is that they shouldn't have any more of an effect on your warranty than adding aftermarket rims. Spacers are easily removable, but will need some extra torque to get them off after using the thread lock. I absolutely LOVE LOVE my spacers. I thought my ride quality improved in respect to steering after I put them on. I thought I had perfect steering prior to the spacers, but once they were on I realized I didn't have perfect steering before. My MPG has not changed and offroad I can't say I had any issues I would implicate the spacers for (or any issues at all for that matter.)

Any chance of getting some photos from a distance? Curious how it looks with the factory tires that aren’t as wide as some others. Thanks

I am pretty sure we have the same Jeep and I have a pair of the 1-3/4 sitting on the shelf in the garage.

Curious..post #2 references 1 1/2" spacers. Synergy WEBsite - for the JL - indicates that the 1 5/8" spacer is replaced by the 1 3/4" spacer. They do have 1 1/4" and 1 1/2" spacers for other Jeep models.

So...the studs are a tad longer on the JL as I recall thus maybe the 1 3/4" is to eliminate any need to grind them on aftermarket wheels. But stock wheels have the recesses to handle an exposed stud end, but how long?.

1) Can any of the other listed spacers work on a JL?

2) Would a JL spacer (from someone else) at 1 1/2", 1 1/4" or even 1" clear for a stock wheel no stud grinding?

I have Bora 1.5" spacers and stock wheels. No issues with the studs

Thanks. I just sent an email to them asking about 1.25" and 1.0" spacers and stud grinding.

I have Synergy 1.75" spacers. Give a great look, and a very slight change to better steering, especially on turns.
I think anything less than 1.75" will be hard to install on Rubicons or I might be wrong.

1-5/8" spacers cleared most JL studs without trimming, but we had one vehicle in the shop that required the rear studs to be slightly trimmed. I believe it was a Sport. 1-3/4" spacers don't require any trimming.

If you want different backspacing/offset than the JL spacers we offer, you will want to look into aftermarket wheels.
