I would rather use the spacers as opposed to cutting into the crossover pipe and welding in a hoop.
Check over on AEV's site. A couple of people posted up negative reviews of the spacers. Don't do what I did and think your avg local muffler shop can cut and weld in a 'bend'. I had mine done .... And had to have it redone because the job was so poor - and, it was still a hack job. I finally gave in and purchased the aFe - what I should've done to begin with.
Realizing you didn't ask this, but if you're not wheeling right away, I'd recommend saving for the aFe. The shaft only hits at full droop, so unless you're getting into some really flexy stuff right from the get-go, it would be worth waiting, IMHO.
