spidertrax will spacers

I'm thinking of installing some will spacers on my 71 cj5, I run 31 inch tires that will rub and I'm also looking for a wider stance. Does anyone have any pro's and con's on this product. Thanks

I used them on my ZJ before with no complaints.

I am running 1.25 Spidertrax on each wheel in the rear. No issues so far. They look very cool.

I've got them on my CJ7 NT, front and rear. Just remember to clean off the wheel studs good before you put them on, and to use the supplied LocTite and recommended torque when installing the spacers. Check torque again after the recommended mileage. I also check the torque on mine everytime I service the wheel bearings, which is once or twice a year.

Same story as the others have posted. I have them front and rear on my '83, no problems with them. Just check the torque on the nuts every now and then-

I put a set of 2" eBay spacers on mine last week and I have been amazed at how much more stable my NT '76 CJ5 has become. Get em,

FYI, keep an eye on their Outlet page, they're about $20 cheaper and free shipping.

There are places you can get these same spacers much cheaper then you get them from Spidertraxs. Found a couple place that sell for $75 a set and another place $88 a set. Looking to get a couple of sets myself, but need an adapter instead of a spacer. Just about a 79 CJ7 in November, but I also have a 99 XJ. I have 4 different sets of tires I run on the XJ with a 4.5 bolt pattern, which will not work on my CJ, so I have to get an adapter to fit my tires to the CJ
