Yes it is safe to run spacers. Spidertrax makes the 1.5" spacers and they are very popular. However, most Jeeppers sell the stock wheels/tires and get smaller wheels with better backspacing (4.5" or more
) and bigger tires to mount on them. You do have to re-check and make sure your spacers are properly torqued every so often but you'll have to do this with many other mods so it's really no biggie in the long run. The cost savings of buying new wheels/tires vs buying spacers and paying more for tires that could even potentially weigh more by staying with the stock wheels out weigh the positives.
