Is that Offroad Edition a V8 model?
I couldn't tell you on that, and possibly something Mopar would not report.?.? I've tried diggin up info on it, but have not been too successful so far.

The only thing I remember from when I first saw this was a discrepancy in the tire size, reported to be 33's but actually 32's.


Sure my rig has seen the trail, but I wheel it like a soccer mom looking for a parking spot at Nordstroms.

It is a SEMA show car so they probably just threw on the smaller brakes if it is a v8 or maybe its not a v8.

SEMA WK2

More SEMA WK2

It would appear to be a V8 and be sporting 17" JK Moab wheels. Most likely though, they're running wheel spacers. Shoot though, I could check it out when I have time since I've also got a Rubicon in my stable.

The details.

OK - to make my wheel crawling easier, can anyone provide this info?

Given an 18" wheel:

What backspace and offset should I be looking for in an aftermarket wheel to make sure there is no clearance issues assuming I run a 31-32" tire?

Thanks heaps.

Greg

PS: great forum BTW!

+35 up to +56mm should be good. Not sure how much lower than +35 I would go without checking clearance.
