    i have 3" billit spacer i got on ebay and now i am looking to put m/t 305/60/18s on my 07 bc long bed. i am just wondering if i can add a few washers on top of the spacer to give me that little bit of extra room. i know it is getto and pretty cheap of me. but my truck is just for looks. is there a reason that they dont make a 3 1/2" spacer. should i try this or am i crazy.:confused:

    I think you would be better off doing a 1" body lift. Adding washers to the top of a spacer lift don't sound like the smartest thing to do.

    You can stack those washers for your body lift.

    I wouldn't do the washers. Just do some trimming if you don't go off road you shouldn't need to trim much.

    Refer to the link I posted. You are already putting parts in potential danger. I would not recommend "rednecking" the suspension that you drive your life on. My 2 cents.
