Adding washers

Anybody here added washers instead of spacers? Tires are not rubbing, yet, so someone told me just to add washers. If so, how is this done?

I did that on my Tj. But it was for the steer stop, so the tire would not rub on a tight turn

That's exactly what I am looking to do. What did it entail?

Here's a link on how to do it to a JK...be aware, you'll lose a small bit of turning radius by adding washers, so don't do it unless you know your tires are rubbing.

Actually, I just looked at your link...looks pretty much the same as the one I posted. Mine's just unnecessary reinforcement...
