What size tires? What size and type of lift? Any suspension mods?
Normally you want in the 3.5-4.5 range for a TJ depending on the tire size. I have the 5" backspaced moab rims that required a 1 1/4" wheel spacer to make them fit without rubbing. The more backspacing the closer to the control arm and steering will result. I'm not sure how close the 4.5" will fit but there should be a chart in the FAQ section or at least some answers regarding it.

Read your profile after the post... Are you getting rid of the Moab's?
