    If he's not mechanically inclined spacers are a bad idea. You have to keep remembering to tighten them up or you die. If you were thinking you'd just tell him to get rims with the proper back spacing. Spacers are a last resort in any situation and should be avoided.

    You can probably figure out a logical answer to that one on your own I hope. I didn't know there was a right answer here. Just throwing out options like everyone else. :typing:

    If we are talking logical maybe say wheels or spacers? or just ditch the spacers as a whole if you really want to be logical.

    Get a good quality 2-3" suspension lift. OME or the like. It will improve the looks as well as handling, comfort, capability. Your truck looks best in glamour shots taken in the middle of nowhere with some mud and scratches on the side, with a beer cooler in the back and the tailgate down. Just my .02

    FOX 2.5 extended travel, Fox 2.0 rears, LR UCA, XSPX rims, some light bars, and switches
    People plasti dip rims black until they can afford new real black rims, later decide to either sell old rims or put stock ones back on to trade in or something and they simply peel the plasti dip off... Plasti dip kills resell value, screams highschooler drove the hell out of it... Luckily it peels off!

    back to OP
    1. Used Rims and tires, crazy how many people want to change their setup and try to sell their old rims and tires...
    2. BHLM (if your comfortable to take apart and reseal headlights (I'm not confident enough to do it yet)
    3. Black out emblems
    4. Tint windows (first thing I do when i get a new car)
    5. Light bar (really changed the whole look of my truck
    6. new grill
    7. floor mats or seat covers
    8. Led interior lights
    At this point you probably can't afford a lift and IMO don't lift on stock rims and tires they look to small

    Be patient and watch craigslist and here for good deals! There's lots of second-handing going on around here! You should be able to find anything you want if you can wait for it!

    And for the record, the norcal guys are awesome... I've scored bed bars, ap sliders, and a black stock rear bumper to beat up on!

    Front bilstein 5100 with OME 884 w/trim pack, 17" fuel trophy wheels wrapped with 32" toyot open country m/t, bakflip fibermax tonneau cover, Avec 30" led light bar behind lower grille, marathon seat covers in max 5 camo pattern, trimmed front and rear mud flaps, more to come.
    + 1 for the 5100 matched with OME coils or OME shocks up front. I did just the 5100 up front to try and be cheap and hated the ride. Spend the extra 180 bucks on the OME coils and you will love the ride. Don't use spacers get proper back species wheels when you can. With factory rims I ran the tires I habe now 265/70 (32" toyo) I believe and never had a rubbing issue at all.
