    I'm gonna get the Toytec ultimate kit. Run 33x10.50 on the stock wheels with TC UCA's. So I don't mind trimming a bit but will I need wheel spacers and if so why?

    Geeze, so to lift these trucks right you need

    1.) Lift
    2.) UCA's - for proper alignment
    3.) Wheel Spacers
    4.) Tires

    Or new wheels with back spacing....

    Any rec's on good spacers?

    There are different spacers. There are lug centric and hub centric ones. The most common I've seen on here are the Spidertrax ones. I think they go for $100 a pair, so that makes $200 for all four corners.

    UCA's are a hit or miss if you're talking about alignment only. Some people don't need them if they don't don't have an alignment issue (still recommended). Other want for performance I guess.
