    Strongly advise against spacers. Could fail and kill someone. See recent thread about being "stuck in fayettville". Guy had a wheel fall off after getting pjlled out
    . Also see spidertrax website which advises against use on highway....offroad only.

    If I put those on my truck and lost a wheel and killed someone I don't know if I could live with myself. Just pony up and do it right.

    Otherwise...setup lools good.

    Yeah, agreed about the spacers...

    Actually, living in Port Townsend right now.

    Used to surf the light house quite a bit, especially K 39, and Pilgrim Avenue. Really lights up if the conditions are jussssst right.

    Fishing out of Alaska for the foreseeable future, although both of those names sound familiar. Used to live right across from the Mews on Main Street in Wakefield.

    Many, the list goes on..
    I agree with the plans but agree with other guys about the spacers. They can cause problems. I also have 3 inch lift with 285/75/16 and fits fine w minor trimming but went with a rim that could accommodate. SO many decisions :frusty:

    You could run a different tire size with a narrower tire and still get a 33" tire on there with the stock wheel and no spacer. Lots of guys run this combo without having to worry about hitting the upper control arm. Plus a narrower tire saves on gas and is easier for the 4bang to push. Check out the toyo m55....they have it in the metric equivalent of 33x10.5 which will clear the UCA. Can't remember the metroc soze..
    . Ill look for it


    BTW.....my wife worked at the Mews as the kitchen manager while she was in college at URI. small world. I live kn seattle now. Surf the strait frequently
    Twin rivers can be fun....little bit slow and underpowered
    But fun. Have you been up to Tofino?
