Spacers on the rear axle to make track width more equal

Who's running them? Any issues with them not withstanding hard wheeling?

I'm thinking of running some 1.5'' spacers on the rear axle to make the rear wheels track closer to the front wheels.

I have been on mine for about a year. No issues thus far, just make sure you get Quality spacers.

Any experience with all pro's spacers?

I have one of their 1.5's but never used it - I bought it before I had a matching spare wheel to solve the backspace issues of the stock spare on a gusseted spindle.

I got 'em in the back too... no long travel, but spindle lift widened my front by 3" so I used 1.5" spacers on each side in the back to even it out. No issues yet... but I am kinda leary of them (even WITH my "young and therefore invincible" status haha)

They are aluminum though... so I figure if they're ready to break they'll start to bend first and cause some horribly wobbly wheels.

I'm running the spidertrax spacers on the rear. I beat the shit out of my truck and have had zero issues with the spacers.

As everyone else says, red locktight and retorque them regularly.
