Will NOT work. The OME hd springs alone max out the lift with the factory front axle location. In order to add the spacers, the diff must be lowered a significant amount. I installed the OME's last summer. I just tried to add a set of RRO spacer's and it was a no go. The fender was 12 inches over the tire and the axleshaft angle was non workable. Had to remove them. If they have not been shipped, I would cancel the spacers.

Wheel spacers. I wouldn’t stack a spacer kit in there.

Ok, got it. I have 1.5" on mine. I like the wider stance. Makes it look like a real jeep.

Update: my mechanic still hasn’t gotten to the Commander. BUT I do want to share a deal I found...I was looking for some JK wheels and BFG M/T’s. I found some on Facebook marketplace that said “5 wheels and tires” for $250. I message the guy and he says they have maybe 30% tread left BUT they come with 4 identical tires that are about 80%. He lowered the price to $200 if I could come pick them up. It was an hour drive.

Nice deal. Thats the best part about running that size tire and wheel setup they are available cheap beacause JK guys like to move up to a bigger and wider combo.
