    Bilstein 5100s (Front & ext. Rear), Eibach coils @ 0, MaxTrac 4" Spindles, Light Racing UCAs, 1/4" lean spacer, All-Pro 3" Standard leafs, u-bolt flip kit, SpiderTrax 1.25" wheel spacers, 33" (285/70/17) TreadWright Warden A/T tires, extended lines
    Unless you add more lift I believe you definitely have to trim for 33" tires (285/70). I had to do a body mount chop too, which is a must if you offroad at all and cycle your suspension. I went offroading soon after lift and 33s so my rub marks helped me determine what to trim haha.

    But currently My drivers side inner fender plastic is gone (ripped off while off-roading) and my passenger side is trimmed mostly around where the vent holes are in the inner fender plastic. I believe that wheel spacers make you have to trim more since it brings the wheel out more and interfere more when the wheel is turned.

    I just had my cb and driveshaft replaced under warranty. ..my tech said he had to pull the rear of the drive shaft 1.5 inches so it would meet the rear end. .. he also recommended the spacer. ..so I ordered one from 4crawler yesterday..I have a cb drop so my angles arent terrible its just that pulling on the rubber

    So after heading down to a driveline shop and being recommended to have my driveshaft extended 1" I went ahead and ordered a driveshaft spacer from 4crawler.com. I received it today and installed it, only take about 30min to install. I took the truck for a test drive and had nearly no vibrations, I'd say it cured my vibes 99%. My carrier bearing is starting to whine a bit so that 1% could be due to the CB being bad so I'll have to replace it and see how it goes from there. My only complaint is I wish I would've a ordered a 3/4" spacer cuz it looks like the shaft might be sitting a little to far inside the trans housing. I wasn't sure how far in it needed to be so I figured 1" would be fine.

    I'm keeping the 1" spacer for now since I'm able to drive with my truck with no vibes but already ordered the 3/4" so the 1" will be up for sale in a few days.
    I couldn't be happier with this product though!

    Here are some before and after pics

    Ill take that spacer off your hands!!

    From the looks of it, your slip yoke doesn't look to be too far out to begin with. I have an inch before mine sits flush in the trans housing.

    Just look at my build to the left. Haven't updated for glass or spacers...no pic on my phone atm

    Wheels are 16x8 race line renegades, 4.75 (I think, maybe 4.5) BS, with 285/75/16 BFG AT's...they are just barely even with the glass.
