Drill a hole in a hockey puck and use it for spacer.

Looks to be GY Duras. My brother likes them but jeeze are they noisy.

Also thanks for the Moab heads up. Looks like I won't be able to make it down there then. I'll be in Gunnison/Ouray area though for the NPS before you head home so if you want to do some beautiful mountain passes, let me know!

I've got spacers coming, so they won't, but otherwise, I'm sure they would.

Wheel weights on the outside really? Looks really nice though. Gonna be even nicer once you get those spacers mounted. Hows the tread depth in person look?

The weights have always been on the outside. The tread looks awesome, especially since the lugs are twice as tall, the voids are bigger too.

I'll take it for a spin after work and report back.

Took the Jeep for a ride, the speedo was off by 5mph at 65mph. I set the Speedohealer back to the stock setting and went for another ride. The speedo showed 51 when the GPS said 60, a quick reset of the speedohealer fixed that, now its dead on.

The Jeep drives great, runs down the highway great, no loss of power or speed noticed, up hill and in a head wind.
