New Spacers!

Just installed 1.5" spacers on to my Jk tonight.
I like the look. Most people probably wouldn't notice the change, but it is quiet different. Looks a little more aggressive. Took less than an hour with all manual tools.

They are a definite subtle improvement. Not so much when looking right at the tires, but when you step back, the hero doesn't look so top heavy.

Right on, it does look better. Also good to know how long it took you by hand.

and... Hello from PG!

I had 1.5 inch SpiderTrax spacers with 275/70/17 AT tires. I used them for 2 years (they were perfect) but I pulled them off as I'll be getting new rims soon.

I've always been a "little" concerned about another point of failure, and the added stress to the ball joints, although I don't wheel.

In my state, RI, they passed inspection.

I'm running the Rough country 1.5" wheel spacers on mine. I kept them in even after getting my 17x9 wheels. I like the look and have been running the spacers on 35x12.5-17 tires for over 2 years





I have never heard of any failures with any of my buddies wheel spacers, some have been running the same ones for more than 10 years.

I've got the 1.75" Spidertrax on it. I really like the stance. Much better than stock.
