    Who's running them? Any issues with them not withstanding hard wheeling?

    I'm thinking of running some 1.5'' spacers on the rear axle to make the rear wheels track closer to the front wheels.

    Same here but they make me uncomfortable. Custom width rear axle is high on my wish list.

    Any experience with all pro's spacers?

    I have one of their 1.5's but never used it - I bought it before I had a matching spare wheel to solve the backspace issues of the stock spare on a gusseted spindle.

    this, make sure they are torqued to the specs it tells you and put the red locktight stuff(it usually comes with them) i have spidertrax in the front of my truck and i dont have any issues, spacer paranoia just gets to me and i end up pulling my wheels off and checking them every month or so

    I got 'em in the back too... no long travel, but spindle lift widened my front by 3" so I used 1.5" spacers on each side in the back to even it out. No issues yet... but I am kinda leary of them (even WITH my "young and therefore invincible" status haha)

    They are aluminum though... so I figure if they're ready to break they'll start to bend first and cause some horribly wobbly wheels.

    ...Umm...
    I've got 2 inch ones from H&R and I have only put them on once. Perfect. A must have for LT trucks if you ask me.
    Wit the front all wide and the back all tucked under big fenders... G A YYYYYeeeee!!!
    hahaahaaa JK, I just think it looks way better stanced. But maybe that's just me coming from the world of hellaflush.

    I'm running the spidertrax spacers on the rear. I beat the shit out of my truck and have had zero issues with the spacers.

    As everyone else says, red locktight and retorque them regularly.
