    I was thinking about getting spacers to allow for bigger, wider tires. I don't think i want to get into the whole lift thing due to cost and inherent problems, but spacers seem to be the fit. Does anyone have any opinions or pics with factory suspension and spacers?

    Thanks!!

    When you say *Spacers* - what are you referring to?

    Lift spacers -or- wheel spacers?

    Lift spacers are a suspension lift. Wheel spacers go inbetween the wheel & your rotor/mounting surface.

    A spacer IS a lift...unless you mean wheel spacers... they are a cheap way to lift your truck. I used toytec spacers for over a year and they are good for a beginer lift. They will however give you a rougher ride.

    Yeah at about 100,000 miles you'll be replacing your CV boots. You'll also be in for a very uncomfortable ride! You're better off going with the billies.

    My gf's uncle has a 2" spacer lift on his F150, and he's at 112,000 miles on his truck and the last time I talked to him, he was ordering new CV boots.

    Sorry for the confustion, but i was referring to wheel spacers that will allow for bigger, wider tire. Please correct me If I'm way off here, but I don't want to do the lift as I don't offroad and don't want the issues that others have but I would like a bigger tire to give it a meaner look.

    Thanks!!

    Just go with beefy 265's than. You will most likely rub with anything else if you go bigger.

    I have a 2.5" lift and have 285 tires, I added 1.25" wheel spacers and it made them rub way worse
