SpiderTrax spacers installed

I ordered some 1.25" SpiderTrax spacers (on Silverback's recommendation). They came in and I got them installed tonight and they have resolved my rubbing issue on the UCAs. Of course, now I have to trim the inner fender just a bit...

I don't know what it is about me and getting bad nuts (insert joke here) but one out of the 24 nuts was bad. couldn't get it to tighten. I'll call SpiderTrax tomorrow to get them to send me another. I went to O'Reillys, but they didn't have one with the same thread pitch, and all the other parts stores were closed.

Anyway, here are some pics.

With sufficient thrust, pigs fly just fine.

Is Nice!!!!!!!!

Probably gonna be my next Christmas wish list item. I like my stock rims too much to want to change them.

Can you run 285's with this now, or will you still have rubbing at full lock?

I was running 285s before the spacers, but they were rubbing my UCAs. Now, there appears to be a little inner fender rubbing that I'll need to trim, but I don't think it's gonna be a lot... But, I'm not rubbing my UCAs anymore.

I had no idea what that was! Does it really matter? I got them all torqued down to 80 lbs...

you will only need a drop of loctite on each stud. Don't go overboard.
