    Do jk atx slabs fit the new JLU rubicon?

    Saw eddies video and he said the jk has new lug bolts. Will the old atx slabs fit the new JL rubicon?

    I read that someone with KMC’s (possibly Machetes) had to drill out the holes a little. I would guess it’s the same with Slabs. Bigger concern would be the backspacing on a JL. With wider axles, 3.5” backspacing is a lot.

    Edit: I was just texting a buddy that went from a JK to a JL and swapped his wheels. I was wrong...sounds like most wheels are ok, just a tighter fit on the lugs. He said he gummed up the threads a little but it works.
    And don’t get me wrong...3.5” backspacing will work. Just wouldn’t be my first choice.

    They are both 5x5 bolt pattern, so they should be identical in regards to that.

    JL's have 14mm studs, so they're 1.3mm larger than the 1/2" studs on the JK's.

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.
