Yes. Your only problem might be with width. If you don't get new wheels, get a set of these. You will need to order two sets (two axles).

I've heard spacers will loosen up and require constant re-tightening.

jabroni3411: Not the spidertrax. They are hubcentric as oppose to lugcentric like the ones you find on ebay.

boogeyman: I suggest finding some stock alloys on craigslist. They are cheap, high quality, and look really good painted. Here's how I did mine.

go with the bomb proof motor mounts from M.O.R.E, SYE is fairly easy when you get the whole kit together with a new shaft there are plenty of write ups about them on here check out the search tab

Just remember a few things, if you upgrade something do it right the first time, twice as expensive and twice as time consuming to have to do it over again. If you change something most likely it'll effect another part or area so do your (jeep) homework prior and itll save you repairs in the future. Shop around too lots of companies out there offering deals and never look past Craigslist, junkyards and local shops with used parts

For motor mounts, I'd say to get this kit BL & MML from JKS, as it retains the factory bushings (it is just a spacer). If you want to get a full replacement go to the Brown Dog Offroad motor mounts, in rubber. If you get polyurethane, a lot more engine vibrations will be transferred to the body. I have never installed an SYE, and hope I don't have to. I want to stay relatively LCG, with no more than a 3" suspension lift and 1.25" body lift.

I didn't get any! I live in Clarence, North end of Erie County, and the school district a mile South of me was closed the last two days with 3 feet of snow, and we got an inch! It made me really mad.
