|JeffC||after installing mine, I've been asked several times "what size lift is that?" or "is that a leveling kit?" If you have the Rubicon tires it really does change the stance. I was not even interested but a buddy called me over and gave me his. As soon as I saw the first one installed I was convinced.|

|jsmithtx||I ran Spidertax for about six months to finish off my stock tires. I liked the stance much better and didn't notice any more road noise. When I needed new tires I got 33" Duratracs and 16" Dick Cepek wheels with proper backspacing. For me spacers were just short term fix.|

There are a lot of opinions on them certainly. I think you'll be hard pressed however to find a majority of jeep owners using them over wheels with proper backspacing. This alleviates the need for spacers and you can get as wide a tire as you would like for function/form.
Spacers are used but they are used so sparingly amongst the jeeping community for good reason. It's your jeep though and you can certainly run them and re-torque/check them if you plan on using them long term.

I just installed 1.5" spidertrax also. i was worried about scrubbing when upgrading to Duratracs 285's. I also noticed a lot more road noise but is worth the trade-off to me.

|siddious33||Jammer, what is that light bar you are running on your stock bumper? Looks good! I want one.|

|ESP||Spacers are really just a stepping stone and a assumed solver of wanting a wider stance. When you go to a larger tire, you'll want a wheel with proper backspacing to give you all of this without the use of spacers.|

|jkmohican||I like the look, i always afraid of spacers though. Glad it worked out for you.|

Installed 1.5" spidertrax tonight. I really like the look. I took it for a tour on the highway and there is quite a bit more road noise now. Glad I put them on before i got tires rather than at the same time. I might have to go with a quieter tire like the DT or Sst maxx (anyone know how they are for road noise?)
