    SpiderTrax Spacers installed. I debated installing them since I went with 265 tires, but after seeing the stance/look of the truck after install, I'm very glad I kept/installed them. I drove down the street and it seemed to handle better. It could be in my head, but I will see next time I drive to see if the driving is smoother.

    Well, after lots of research and weighing all the options against my needs, driving expectations (mostly daily driving), I think my near term mods are as follows (unless I get a resounding NO from the forum). I've thought strongly about the lift options and feel I will try the basic lift first and if I don't like that, Les Schwab agreed to upgrade to 5100s w/o charging me for double labor.

    Got it lifted today...... 3" and Toyo Open Country MT 265/70R17 today. I'm so glad I stayed with my stock wheels. I think they look amazing.

    I ABSOLUTELY love this truck!!!
