Would I need spacers?

These are stock CJ wheels with 32s on them, would they need spacers if I tried to put them on an LJ?

Thanks in advance...

Same bolt pattern as a LJ? If so, how much backspacing do those wheels have?

Nope. stock LJ is 5x4.5", CJ is 5x5.5" - will need an adapter unless running aftermarket axles w/ the CJ bolt pattern....

5 on 5.5 versus your TJ-L's 5 on 4.5. You could get a spacer/adapter, but I don't really see the point. Why not just get spacers for your Unlimited's wheels (to allow you to run wider tires)?

2004 TJ-L with 3-4" of lift, 35's, and no money

The Unlimiteds shall inherit the earth.

well yea that's what i had originally planned, but then I found these and was wondering if they would eliminate the need for spacers (and save me 200 bucks) altogether...

no such luck hehe...
