Ford 1/2 tons are all 5 on 5 1/2.
Chevys are usually a 6 bolt pattern.
Many Dodges are 5 on 4 1/2

H8 is right, ford used alot of 5 on 5 1/2.
but the center hole on all (but of a few) of the factory ford wheels didn't have a center hole big enough for a CJ hub.

It only costs about $10 each to have the center turned out to fit,(unless you have your own lathe), at almost any machine shop. I had to do the same thing to the YJ hubs, when I installed the Warn hub Kit on my D30.

5 on 5 1/2 Dodge 1/2 ton 87 - up

5 on 5 1/2 Ford f-100/f-150 68 thru 96 Except 80 & 81 f-100(most were 4 1/2) Same years of vans(e-150 only)

Believe it or not geo trackers are a 5 on 5 1/2

Gm trucks and vans are 5 on 5 and 4x4's are 6 lug.
Gm uses 5 on 4 and 5 4 1/2 on the front wheel drives
Gm uses 5 on 4 3/4 and 5 on 5 on the rwd cars
Ford cars are mostly 5 on 4 1/2 with a few 5 on 5
Chrysler cars are 5 4 1/2 as are older trucks


These are the main ones I could think of.

Stupid question I know, but are you guys talking about CJ wheel size right, not YJ or TJ correct?

Yes.
CJ is a 5 on 5 1/2"
YJ and TJ are 5 on 4 1/2"
Just the bolt circle of the wheel.

IHC Scouts are also 5x5.5 but make sure to get the ones off a Scout II with disc brakes, the Scout I (80, 800A/B) had drum brakes F/R and aren't designed for discs.

The Zuki reminds me, I sould post the pics of our 4DR Sidekick I was playing with during the Scout upgrade. I put the 33" Swampers on it, looked mean, but I couldn't turn the tires, made a nice pic though.
