    I was going to order BORA or Spidertrax, but 4wheel parts has these G2s in stock locally, and I could get my truck wrapped up this week.

    Any thoughts? I’m fairly ignorant when it comes to metallurgy and machining...

    Bumper, Winch, 315s, Sliders, OME HD lift, Custom rear swingout, roof rack, drawers, way too much to list.
    I'm not sure about the quality, but being hub centric is important for Toyotas.

    Not sure, but I think it is always worth the little bit of extra time to buy parts from reputable companies. I got my Spidertrax the day after ordering and they have worked out fine for me.

    With something that is going to take that much abuse go with the best. I went with BORA but Spyder Traxx are every bit as good. Maybe some guys will post pictures of what happens when a spacer fails.
    Hub centric spacers are the best way to go. Dont take chances.

    I ordered them during their christmas sale. The big made in china sticker on each spacer as well as the lacking build quality made me send them back even though I had to come out of pocket on shipping costs. I had them and spidertrax on my table at same time and the spidertrax has better finish and way better studs.

    Spidertrax it is then. Just ordered them. Would probably have gone BORA but they’re closed for another week.

    You'll be happy you did. Last thing you want to put on your truck are low quality wheel spacers. Although I'm sure many would say don't put them on at all :p

    Right. I was reluctant and this is probably a temp measure until I figure out exactly what backspacing I want. I’ll then order custom steelies. I like the no frills look.

    I read this thread on a JK forum, it was a good read and gave me more confidence. Of course it is just something I read on the innerwebs, but hey.
