@DadJokes Ever get your tires installed? I'm curious how they fit and look.

Thanks
295/70/18 Mickey Thompson Baja Boss A/T’s and 1” Bora hubcentric wheel spacers.

The 17’s were just a bit wide for my liking by the time you were pushing 35 inches tall.

DadJokes, that looks fantastic! Any issues with the OE wheel studs being too long for the OE wheel pockets using those 1" wheel spacers from Bora?

The factory studs only protrude .410” past the 1” spacer. There’s up to .750 pocket depth on my Rubicon Upgrade wheels (not installed) and these Sahara upgrade wheels appear just as deep so there’s no interference fitment issue with a 1” spacer.

In effect, since the Rubicon axles are .750” longer per side, this sticks out only .250” further than the same tire fitted on a Rubicon. These are Rubicon fenders in the pictures.

And if you don’t like the commonly brightly colored spacers, these Bora spacers are black.:like:

What spacers did you use. Anything under 1.5 is a different bolt thread for the Jl. I need it to be M14 all around. I read all 5 pages but can you tell me the exact model number that uses the M14 stud? Thanks
