wheel spacers w/ budget boost?

Looking to do a teraflex budget boost on the wife's jku sport. I picked up some 2014 Rubicon take-offs for a song. Quadratec states the budget 2.5 boost needs wheel spacers if using factory wheels. Is this legit? What size spacers do you sugest? 1.5" or 1.75" an explanation of why spacers are needed would be amazing.
Thanks

Because of the extreme back spacing of the stock wheels, the tires will rub on the rear sway bar links with the TF lift.

1.5" Spidertrax would be the way to go.

Great product. No complaints that I could find about using the spacers, either on, or off road.

I will be putting those on my '14 Sahara, with stock wheels and 35's

Those are roughly a 33 inch tire which may run at full lock. You can add spacers if you find they rub and you're not happy with it.

Spidertrax does have a great product. Really, any hub-centeric Wheel Spacer will work about the same. Most guys will tell you to torque the spacer bolts when you do your oil changes to make sure everything stays safe.

Let me know if you have any other questions.

Another nice option is the TeraFlex spacers.

So as I originally asked. I can or can not run budget boost without spacers with stock Rubicon wheels and tires?

With that setup you DO NOT need spacers.
