do you have something against spacers?
Nothing against spacers, I run them as well. But I have stock rims, I didn't think you needed spacers with steelies since they are usually at least 4" BS. Were your tires rubbing?

Sold the 98 TJ Sahara. Buying another Jeep soon!

Not to flame you but the reason some guys frown on spacers is because you will wear out your front unit bearings much faster, and being that your wheels we already sticking out a bit you may be replacing them a lot more than you would like.

Nice looking Jeep though!
