Yeah they do by about an inch. The soft 8's have 4" of back spacing, compared to the ~6" on stock wheels. And thank you I've put a lot of research, time effort and money into this vehicle, and I'm happy with it. More to come!

I just installed mine, the hardest part was getting the pinion nut off... and a Bonus, it comes with directions!!!

Double cardan driveshaft, get it if you have any lift on it. I replaced the cv joint on mine, worst/ dumbest investment on my wj ever.

I unbolted the one end of my steering stabilizer, to check it. Had next to no resistance,then it started leaking oil. So tomorrow, I'm going to get a Moog Trail boss if the parts place has it. It may be over kill for my stocker, but overkill is good sometimes.

Did the baja bumper trim-pretty happy with the results. Will be testing it out on the Pipeline in WI this weekend.

I'm also trying to find my "over a bump" grinding noise coming from the rear axle...

Pretty stoked on how everything turned out. I have many, many more plans for it.

EDIT: Sorry for the driveway shots. Havent had a chance to take it out and have a little fun yet.
That's looking sexy man! And the Fawkes bull bar mount with shackles is so good looking. my favorite looking WJ that has a minor lift man

Do the ZJ conversion. There are notes all over the site about how to do this.. I'll probably have somewhere around $175 in mine but I replaced everything.. If you found one in really good condition you could probably do it for under $100 W/ the yoke. Lots of people on the site have done this.
