I'm pretty sure they won't without a lift. 275/55/20 will and from what I've read 285/50/20 will.

I believe mcwushu on here is running them. It does require a lift and they had to bend back the pinch welds to keep them from rubbing, if my memory serves correctly.

No problem!
Not sure how familiar you are with the trail grapplers, but they are a heavy and pretty loud tire.... So be prepared, especially if you do a lot of highway driving. With all that said, they are a great tire. I had them on my old ram for 20k miles and they looked like new up to the day I traded it in.

Hi,

I read your post about the Nitto Terra Grapplers, I had an 02 WJ with 18" wheels and 255/70 rubber. They were great. They did fit that model nicely. As for your model with those 20's not sure if they'd fit without a mod. I'll keep my ears open.

Nice meeting you,
Jeepchopper72
