Rough Country Spacers?

I was not aware that these were available, but I have a rough country spacer lift and the quality was top notch.... can anyone vouch for their 1.5 inch spacers for the WK?

If so im gonna go ahead and make the order, and if I remember correctly your supposed to use a little bit of RED loc tite right?

Re: Rough Country Spacers?

I've used their spacers in the past on my last XJ. I would honestly go with a 1.25" spacer though. 1.5" sticks out a bit much for my taste. Correct on the loctite. Also torque them before mounting your wheels.

Thank you Tosh, the reason I say 1.5 is cause I'm only running a 255 so I shouldn't stick out all that much, and iv got a torque wrench so I'd def get them perfect when they go on and then at the recommended intervals also, prob gonna place an order tonight!

Yea use red, only thing is if you ever have to take them off the only way to get it off its lots of torque and heat

Re: Rough Country Spacers?

use blue. your not gonna want to fight them when it's time to change out your rotors. just re-torque them everytime you rotate your tires.
