I ran 1.5 inch syder trax on my JKU. I also ran 1.5 inch spacers, another brand on my TJ. I still have the old spacers and hardware if your looking to save some money. No issues with spacers.

Spidertrax are a good brand of spacer. I personally think you pay a premium for the Spidertrax name. Any hub-centric spacer is going to be more or the less the same. The Rough Country 1.5" Spacers for instance are made out of a very high grade aluminum to protect against corrosion and give the spacers a long life. And they are a good bit cheaper than Spidertrax.

What ever brand you decide to go with, make sure you torque them with every oil change to make sure you stay safe! Let me know if you have any questions or would like a quote on anything!

I ran rough country 1.5 for a while. High quality at a better price. You didn't say why you want spacers. I recommend using spacers only with stock wheels that have poor backspacing so you can fit larger tires. Aftermarket wheels that have good backspacing have usually have no need for spacers.

I have run Spidertrax spacers for many years now with no problems. Just install them properly.
