    Me either. But I dont have any money to get new wheels and my truck is 90% street truck. Hopefully its just temporary.

    I've looked at Spidertrax (A waiting list), All-Pro (good quality stuff), and then Marlin spacers...i don tknow anything about them.

    I have been running 1.5 inch Marlin Crawler wheel spacers w/stock 16 inch TRD wheels for almost two years now. I have jumped, rock crawled, high speed desert run w/ no issues.

    The key to that is maintenance. You need to check them every 3000 miles at tire rotation. Keep them clean. Check all the bolts,threads. I scrape mud/dirt out w/ a toothbrush. Yes its some work but to me its worth it. Also buy quality spacers not the $20 deals.

    If your going to wheel it you will regret going 265s. If most of your driving is on the street then 265s might be a better choice and will make a noticeable difference in power and gas mileage over 285s.

    I know I'm still getting a second truck soon. I'm also going to try and fit 35" MTs.


    I will supercharge my truck down the road though.
