I got mine for $600 for all 5...had a Tj and wanted to go to 18's. These adapters were the only way to get it done(Dont make 18's for a TJ). I have one left if you need it...I think they were about $220 for the set of 4.

Yup you should be fine. With my 3 inch lift, I still sit a little low in the front. Got a set of 3/4 spacer coming tomorrow, and that ought to do it. I just trimmed the pich seam on the back of front inner fenders, and I am good to go without it.

Good Luck bud.

If it helps you I will, I think you have to buy them by the pair anyway, so not sure how one odd ball one would help. If you need it, send me a PM.
