You're gonna want to order wheel spacer for a JK or WK. TJ's are 5x4.5 bolt pattern ours are 5x5.

Did you have to sacrifice your spare tire area?

Thanks for the tip! Do you have any photos of how yours pattern?

I've been thinking of doing diffused on the front sides with a focused center light bar, or vice versa (diffused center bar, spots on the sides). That'll give me the option of either focused spot or broad pattern depending on application. Until I see an example though, I'm just talking out my bum.

Oops! I meant JK and have corrected my previous post. Long days and little sleep requires the occasional correction like that.

Thanks for your service. JK ones should fit fine. Be safe!

I don't have any good night pictures of the front / rear light dispersion. (I can't ever seem to remember when I'm up in the mountains at night.)

Here are a couple pics of them installed though...
