My mid travel is installed.

Took all day with my buddy and I. Of course we ran into a couple issues here and there but we were expecting that. Tell me what you guys think! Here are some pics

That might be almost exactly the setup im receiving wednesday! More pics! How does it ride? Can you twist the rear shock more so the res isnt pointing a bit outside towards the tire?

It's a little stiff on paved road but nothing crazy! About that rear shock, that's the furthest it twist. It looks close, but it's totally fine. Going to Barstow soon to see how it responds out there, maybe do some re valving if needed.

I'm running 265/70/17 and want to do some wheel spacers to widen the stance a bit. What do you recommend? These tires are pretty new and won't be getting tires soon. What brand do you recommend?

Well honestly I'm brand new to this topic. I am just used to the stock bilsteins before. It's not a huge difference man. Trust me on that. And stock valved? No idea. Ordered everything through DSM.

Off road suspension won't be as light as stock. It'll feel much firmer but more controlled at the same time. "Off road" is where it will shine!

Sorry, I should have mentioned I currently have 885x/5100's up front with E rated BFG AT's..both together make a pretty bumpy ride on the roads here.(which are prob the worst in the country )
