Your 05 has slightly smaller calipers so Moabs should fit without spacers on yours. However, if you're going to lift and get larger tires, you might want to get spacers anyways to ensure you clear the ball joint bolt easily when you up the tire size. Congrats on the purchase and you're going to love the Duratracs!

That's awesome! My mechanic was trying to sell me the superlift but it was a little too pricey for me. That thing will be an absolute beast.

Haha yeah I've been trying to save every penny. This deal was too good to pass up but other than that spending is at a minimum haha.

Do you have a lift? I can put 70's on them with no problem?

Edit: They went up to $69.

Bummer about the price increase, but at least still free shipping. I think these are some of the nicest looking wheels on the WK, and super easy to clean!

If this question was aimed at me, No, not lifted,stock height. UCA bolt not trimmed, again all stock with the 245/70-17 DuraTrac without rub. My 245/70-17 Revo II's have even more clearance.

Do you guys know if the moabs will fit on an 08? I'm hearing that they hit the calipers. Wondering if I run spacers, which I'll need to clear the bolt anyway, if it'll fix the issue?

As far as the Moab's clearing the 06+ WK calipers, you'll need a minimum of a 1/4"/6 mm spacer for the fronts only.
