Why not redrill the WJ rotors to 5x4.5?...

I've got a set of 17" JK moabs that I'll be putting on my TJ with spidertrax wheel spacers. I did this because it was the cheapest way to achieve the tire / wheel size I wanted. Here's my price break down:
- 4 JK Moabs, 4 Goodyear Wrangler Silent Armor A/T 32" with 10k miles on them for $300
- 1 JK Moab with a the Goodyear MTR tire 32" with 5K miles on it as a spare for $30
- 4 Spidertrax 4.5 to 5 wheel adapter spacers for $100


I came across some pretty good bargains one week

JK rubi wheels run 5x5 and I'm not too keen on Wheel spacers or BLs for that matter.


I was just thinking I want good looking 17s and 35s. I would need upgraded brakes for stopping since stock tj brakes are ok at best. I was thinking I could just run stock WJ unit bearings and bolt on the JK Wheels and skip all the spacer business.

What would you use for inner axle shafts?...

Haven't got that far..

Don't the TJs and WJs have the same spline count for the stubs? I thought the reason people used the TJ unit bearings was for the bolt pattern/ease of parts ordering.

Like the unit bearings are a different thickness or what? I know the shafts are different, that's why you do the .3" spacer thing.
