    How have these spacers been working out for you guys? I'm wondering how these compare with the Spidertrax spacers. Everyone seems to swear by Spidertrax, but these spacers are around half the price. Do they seem similar in quality? I would like to get some 1.25" wide spacers for my TJ to prevent rubbing up front. Thanks in advance!

    Jeep Renegade 25mm (1") Wheel Spacers Installation Write-Up

    FYI anybody wanting to use these 1.25" spacers on a '16 Trailhawk the lugs are still too tall. They apparently changed the lug bolts to a taller capped head instead of the open on the '16. To top it off they put a plastic "happy cap" on the new lug bolts which makes it even worse.

    Apart from removing the happy cap and grinding down the lug bolt heads I'm at a loss of what to do. Any thoughts?

    Found the problem. There are two types of lug bolts that come on a Renegade. The "Chrome" version is too tall for this spacer. Even if you take off the happy cap the bolt head is just too tall. There is a non chrome version you can find at most Mopar parts suppliers. Please not that dealership parts people do not likely know there are two different lug bolts so you may have to force them to look it up.

    I have a 2016 Renegade Trailhawk. I'm confusing this mod, can you give some pictures of the two lug bolts, or perhaps give the part numbers? I need to figure out what I have. I would like to stick with only the 1in spacer.

    Spacers now $78 on eBay

    Just FYI for those interested in this mod, I bought a set of the spacers on eBay exactly as described for $78.00 w/ free shipping And I am going to mount them on my stock 17's to get some width and clearance from the strut base.

    Iv had these on my cj5 for about 4 years. No problems at all. I do check them once in a while but they are never loose.

About us
“wayoflife” is a moniker that I’ve been using for 20 years now and I chose it because I think it does a great job of explaining, in simple terms, the passion I have for Jeeps and the Jeep way of life. This is a lifestyle that transcends age, gender and race as the only thing you need to be a part of it is a love for the outdoors, a desire to explore, a yearning to take on a challenge and a will to conquer it. Over the years, Cindy and I have attempted to capture the essence of this lifestyle through photographs and videos and share it with others around the world. And, this is how WAYALIFE was born.
