    im currently in the process of gathering as much info on this as topic as possible. i have to widen my stance on my '99 runner. i have installed a 3" lift with 285/70/17 and they barley clear. i have about a half inch gap from the top of my tires to the front shocks. i would like to widen it all the way around but i also want the safest way possible. i would like to hear any and all points of view on this from either people who have already done this or have any great ideas. thanks!

    i ran spidertrax spacers up front with no issues, other options would be look for a set of wheels.

    on the rear i would avoid spacers, i busted a shaft with them.

    I'm just starting to look at wheel spacers and know nothing at this point...Can you provide details on why spacers can be bad for a shaft?

    In my previous post above, I quoted a post from @orbot. I'm also trying to figure out what shaft can break if spacers are used in the rear.

    That's a good question because my rig had 37s on it and I had no issues at all....
