    gotta a quick question about the spidertrax spacers; i'm planning on doing a three inch lift in about a month and was wondering if i were to get the spidertrax wheel spacers if i would need to do any trimming so i can run 285/75/16 size tires with no rub? i like the way the 285's look compared to the 265's but i definately don't want any rubbing and would like to stay away from having to do a lot of trimming on the fender liners and such. any help would be greatly appreciated. thanks.

    You wont rub on the frame with the spacers. (or shouldn't with the proper backspacing) However you will most likely rub the crap out of your fenders.

    Im not sure you would have any rub without spacers. Take a look at this calculator before you spend all that money on spacers just to find out you dont need them. It depends on the wheels you are running too, if you stay stock you will probably need the spacers...

    You'll need the spacers to clear the UCAs when turning, but you'll need to remove the front mudflaps and trim a little bit of plastic fender liner and possibly the bottom corner of the front fender flares to avoid rub

    thanks for the input guys. i think that im probably just gonna go ahead and pony up for the spindle lift. it's gonna put me about another month away from lifting the truck, but i think that it'll be worth it.
