97+ XJs running MOAB rims

Lets see em. 97+ Cherokees running Rubicon Moab rims. I'd prefer to see some red XJs to see how'd they'd look on mine, but I'll deal with what you got

No replies yet? Here yo go: 2001 XJ with 4.5" BDS lift and 2006 Rubicon Moabs with the stock 245/75 R 16 MTR's.





Here you see the fit in the wheel well, like they are made for the Cherokee, stock ecco wheel up front.

LOL, um, NO!
They managed to find their way onto the Jeep the next day. As you can see from the pictures I couldn't wait for the sliders to at least test her out a bit on the property. Since you mention them; they're AJ's superrails and they are very nice!

I love me some Moabs! My only problem is running 35's with as little backspacing they have. I'll need to get some spydertrax spacers or somthing.

Dean O, that looks great and just what the OP was looking for. (red)

Tell me about the spare tire carrier, stock component right? Hard to find one of those for a '97 and up! How's it hold up with the 31 on it?

Thanks. Yes that is a factory spare mount and they do seem pretty rare. I found mine on ebay a few years back and picked it up for about 80 bucks. So far so good holding the 31. I've even carried two bikes on a spare mounted bike rack and had no problems, the bumper does flex a little when it's opened but still holds fine, and when closed it's nice and solid.

MOABS are the best looking rim for a Jeep IMO... OEM or aftermarket.
