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..?

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.

I just realized how exspensive spidertrax are I stollen be to buy moabs and then open country at 2's and then another 200$ on spacers dang pricey adventure

If I run moabs with the 1.5" spacer what's the thickest tire I can run?

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.

I found a great deal on a brand new set on 18" moabs the tires have less than 100 miles on them for 275$ what mods would I have to do to make these work?

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.)

I'm guessing these are the wk version I mean you wouldn't suggest selling them to me if they weren't but thought I should clear it with you first haha I'm interested

RedRocker 07-22-2013 12:48 PM

Yes, they are the WK version.

WKFish 07-22-2013 01:02 PM

How old are they and what kind if abuse have they been through? Also post some pics please! I'm interested

RedRocker 07-22-2013 05:39 PM

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.
