Put on the wheels today.

Difference in size:


For the record a 2005 does require grinding:





the new look:


The clearance:


No spacers. No Lift. No rub so far. BFGs are louder than I remember!

They will rub at full lock just slightly, but this is how I ran my Jeep for almost two years before I bought and installed the OME lift.

Did you have your Pressure Sensors swapped?
My light is on now, I don't think they're compatible with the Wrangler's.
I plan on getting the OME MD.

I pulled the sensors and then disabled the system with the flashpaq. I have the md OME and I love the way it rides. In order to keep from using spacers I run some skinny tires now that I've replaced the original Rubicon BFG's. I have some 255/80R17 BFG MT KM2 tires on it. It's very very tight, but it fits. I get a little more rub on the sub frame, and I had to bend over the pinch weld and modify the inner fender liner. But I have some skinny little 33's that worked like a champ in the snow and ice.

Generally Moabs come with BFG Mud Terrains at 255/75/17. Assuming you are getting JK Rubicon Takeoffs

I like the blacked out wheels. Is that paint or Plasti-dip?

That is rim paint, when I got them they were painted a color I didn't like so I quickly just painted over

I'll be picking up a 2006 Laredo this week for my wife. I'm going to see if she'll let me black out the rims.
