Moabs on 05 Wk

I want to put moabs on my 05 Wk rocky mtn edition if I get the spidertrax spacers do I have to put a lift on? And if I don't whats the biggest size tire I can run on it without the lift. Also is the rough country 2" budget lift worth it if I were to lift it..?

Re: Moabs on 05 Wk

Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong but the rims should fit if you clean the caliper bracket up or run at least a 1/4" spacer. No lift required for just the rims. I believe I read somewhere you can fit 245/75 on it without a lift. I can't speak for the rough country lift but daystar also makes a budget lift that seems to be pretty popular.

Re: Moabs on 05 Wk

I have 265/70 17"s on MOAB"s with 1 inch BORA spacers on my 08. No lift, but the front tires did rub slightly when taking turns.

Picked a set of 5 up the guy didn't know what he was talking about they were 18" sahara's which explains alot of why he said 18" I got they for 250$ and they are like brand new. What's the biggest all seasons all terrain tire I can put on these? I don't really want to put a lift on right away but I am willing to do spidertrax 1.5" spacers so if you know anything about this please let me know!'

I have 4 Spidertrax 1.5" spacers gathering dust in my garage you can have for $100 plus shipping. (I replaced with 1.25" Spidertrax for a better fit for my application.)

They are billet aluminum, I'm not sure how you could possibly destroy them! The post threads and securing nuts are all fine (no stripped threads).

They probably have 5-10k miles on them. Used for 3 wheeling seasons; not used in winter, so shouldn't have seen any of the mag chloride used to clear ice in Colorado. Will try to get pics soon.
