    How bad is the rubbing if you dont have spacers?

    Spidertrax 1.25in. I've been running them HARD for over 20k and love them... I feel more stable during harder cornering such as on/off ramps.. Also on the trail during off camber situations .. Not to mention with the skinny tires it gives a wider more aggressive stance that looks great.. Spidertrax is top quality and used by many of us taco owners and are the only ones I recomend... Nice looking truck buddy

    Zero cab mout rub and only a tiny lil bit of inner fender trimming on the very bottom ... Can't even see it without looking for it and that's only for full flexz if ur a street guy u dnt really need to trim... And I'm only at 2.5in of lift

    Here in Ga we dont have much hardcore wheeling. I had already planned on running the spidertrac just to give a wider stance
