I believe I only rubbed on the fender flares so if you want to trim the flares I think you would be ok. If not, I would recommend at least a leveling kit.
    Great, thanks for your input/help!

    What a difference it made! Now working towards getting my level kit on and then new shoes sometime next week. Can't wait!

    How long does it typically take to install these? I'm debating on doing it today before it gets dark.

    Less than an hour. Much faster if you are using an impact gun on your lug nuts to get the wheels on and off. I would avoid using an impact on the actual spacer fasteners though. I used a torque wrench for that.

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.
