You're welcome. I figure if can save someone else some money too, I've contributed to the forum.
Looks good, nice work.. To complete, you might consider using a plastic weld to seal the seamI'm going to use plastic rivets where the blue zip ties are, and dress up the edges a bit to eliminate the mismatch look. I plan on laying a bead of silicon along the seam on the inside of the tray.
Yeah, I'm going to put a bead of something to finish it off. I plan to fill the gap seen on the side view too, but wanted to make sure it all fit and functioned properly before dressing it up.Looks good, nice work.. To complete, you might consider using a plastic weld to seal the seam
What did you use to bolt the tire down? Just picked up a set of 255R70 x 18 BFG KO2's on Sahara wheels, hold down is short, and off center (threaded hole is towards the front).. Going to check tomorrow to see if I can make some additional clearance in the front of the tire wheel, to center the hold down ..Yeah, I'm going to put a bead of something to finish it off.

Yes, talking about securing the tire in the well.. My hold down bolt doesn't seem to reach the threads ( my14)..I'm assuming you're asking about the spare tire mounting in the cargo hold? If so, I just used the original fastener to secure it. I put the spare in as far forward as it would go, and screwed in the stud. The stud doesn't have to be, precisely centered in the rim for the spare to be secure. It's just gotta hold it down, which it does..
I have a few concerns running this set up.Installed a set of 18" non spoke Sahara wheels on me 2014 WK2 diesel. They came very close to the brake calipers in the front. So close that I added 1/4" spacers just to be safe.
As previously mentioned 5mm should be sufficient. Mine cleared without spacers, but they're very close (see post #15). I suspect it's close enough of a fit that it's a Jeep by Jeep kind of situation. With that though, it also means it's not going to take much of a spacer to make them fit. 5mm (.196") or 3/16 (.187") should be enough to clear with room to spare.I have a few concerns running this set up.
I Know this is an older post. But my 18" non spoke wheel rub the caliper bracket. I got them for very cheap. What spacer make did you go with? And are they safe? I really want to run this rim. Do the 1/4" inch spacers just slide on existing lug nuts like big washers? Therefore making the wheel non hub centric. Does anyone on here know the best way to run this rim on a stock height 2011 wk2? Is it best to go with bolt on spacers? And if so what size will work.
