    The best spacers are no spacers. Also you can run 265/75/16s on a stock prerunner/4wd.

    Spacers will ruin your ride.

    You plan on wheeling the truck down the road? If so don't get spacers.

    If you are comfortable using a spring compressor then you don't need a shop for any of the install.

    I had the Revtek kit before my Toytec lift and the ride awful. They all ruin your experience with your truck. Save tour money and get a real lift. You won't regret it.
