I went to True Value today and took a pic of the "mending straps" that I used to make my catch can bracket. They didn't have the pieces that I used, so the part number doesn't match but maybe it would help you find the parts

It might just be personal preferance, but I prefer to keep my tires as flush to the fenders as I can. I think a set of 1.25" or 1.5" look ok on a larger lift (4-6") but on a smaller (2-3") they make the Jeep look squatty. That does still depend on tire choice too. Heck I'm still running 1" spacers with my setup and the Mojave ran 3/4" spacers and looked great

See How It Was Made

Thanks man. I appreciate it. I'm gonna look into it this week. Did you have any trouble with the hose length there?

I totally agree Nathan, I was using 1" eBay spacers but they failed and I didn't want to drive without my larger wheels for that long. Quadratec is 30 mins from me so I just drove over there and bought the spidertraxx 1.25" instead of waiting for the eBay spacers to be replaced. Running 255s doesn't make them stick out that bad.

The hoses were the perfect length for where I mounted it

Since I went from 265's to 255's I was thinking about going with a bigger spacer...just not sure if it's worth it since it would really just be for appearance at this point

One more question about your bora wheel spacers, did you need to trim any of the bolts on the hub or spacer for clearence?

No bc the stock wheels I had and the moab rims I have now have recesses in between the holes to accommodate the bolts

Oh ok. Do you by chance know if all the factory WK rims have that feature. I have the Ronin II rims...

If you look back at my pics, when I first installed my spacers I still had the ronin II's as well so they will work

When I had 1" spacers and my moduflex chrome wheels didn't fit until I grinded down the recesses some.
