No trades...unless you have a set of RE adjustable LCAs for a TJ.

Yes. They come with plain lug nuts to attach them to your vehicle, and you use your stock lug nuts on the wheels.

This is what I used to space out my 8.8 swap on the ZJ. One trick is to go with a set of longer ARP wheel studs. Pound out the studs on the spacers. Pop the spacer onto the shaft with the new longer studs, use some of the lug nuts that the stud can pass thru to tighten the spacers down onto the shaft. Then put your wheel on and use bigger lugnuts with the closed end on them. You may have to shorten the wheel studs to fit the lugnuts. I originally used the spacers as intended, then spun a stud in the aluminum. I had to use a grinder to remove the lugnut and most of the wheel stud. I beat the snot out of the 8.8 set up like this with the ARP studs and never had a problem.

I was wondering that myself, but it sounds like he's talking about running the long ARP studs from the axle, through the spacer, and through the wheel in order to avoid the weak link that failed on him (the second set of studs pressed into the aluminum spacer). I wasn't crazy about the "sandwich" idea, but he mentioned using the pass-through nuts that come with the spacers on the long studs in the same manner they would normally be used in order to secure the spacer to the axle. No idea if the area around the spacer stud holes is counterbored for the lug clearance, or I would think they would interfere with the wheel.

yes they are counterbored I have a 7/8" spacer on the YJ, his way of doing it actually might work a little better in some cases...

They are counterbored around the studs mounted on the spacer?

They are not counterbored around the studs. Only the holes for the axle studs are counterbored, so the open ended lug nuts will seat properly on the spacer.

I think what 84Scrambler was talking about is removing the studs from the spacers, so the wheel can bolt flush. Install longer wheel studs so the studs go through the spacer where the stock studs would go, and then bolt the spacers down. Then slide the wheel over the same studs, and bolt down the wheels.


All of which is irrelevant, because my spacers a almost BRAND NEW, and will work fine as designed.

BTW, thanks for the frquent bumps. Now somebody buy these damn things!!!

More info:

These 1.25" 5 on 4.5" 6061T6 aluminum spacers are an easy way of spacing out front and rear Jeep XJ, YJ, TJ, ZJ, and KJ axles. Each kit comes with 2 wheel spacers, 10 standard wheel studs (pre-installed), 10 lugnuts, and Loctite. The wheel spacers are anodized in dark blue, which is a double anodizing process for twice the corrosion resistance. In addition, each wheel spacer is wheel and hub centric for a perfect fit. Proudly made in the USA.

Oh yeah, one more thing: Spidertrax is currently Out of Stock on this product.
