Another slight hitch in our giddy-up was that our ’97 TJ has a 5-on-41⁄2 bolt pattern, while our old Welds are 5-on-51⁄2. No problem—we called up our friends at SpiderTrax for a set of Jeep CJ Conversion Adapters (PN WHS004). These are high-quality adapters and come with specific installation and maintenance instructions. If you want adapters or spacers, get good ones and maintain them. We used the supplied thread-lock and torqued the lug nuts to spec. Don’t use an air impact with adapters.
