Im ordering some 17 inch wheels with 315/70/17 tires with the RC 6 inch lift and im not sure if i need to get the spidertrax wheel spacers. Or for that fact a body mount chop. If i do need the spacers are there any cheaper ones then spidertrax? Any other accesories that i need with the lift? Thanks guys

depends on the brand and style of tire, but with a 6 I would do it even without neccesity just to widen your stance and lower your center of gravity. as for the price, I dunno. I want some though so I'd also like to find some cheap ones.

You have to run spacers only if you plan on using factory wheels, also if you gt the aftermarket wheels make sure to one with a small enough BS.:cheers:

If I were you, I would do it anyway or find some aftermarket wheels with wider offset to eliminate sway onroad.

If you plan on off-roading it and airing down, the answer is yes. You really don't want a cheap set of wheel spacers, remember your FJ is riding on them. The are a lot of wheel spacers on the market, be sure to get ones that are hub centric. I have Spidertrax 1.25" spacers and very happy with them.

I have a Rough Country lift, but only the 3". I noticed a big difference in stability, rounding corners, etc, after I added the Spidertrax. I definately recommend them with any lift.

I was set on keeping my stock wheels so I went with 2" spacers. 7,000 miles no issues. I did have to put in longer wheels studs in the front hubs to get a safe amount of thread grip but is was an easy mod once I got the research done on what studs would work. I put them on when I had the hubs off to install the lift. I posted the NAPA p/n in a thread when I was looking for help on what wheels studs would fit.

The factory rear studs were long enough to give full thread grip. For some reason the fronts would only penetrate the lug nut about half way.

"12 wheel studs NAPA parts number 641-4119"

With those studs I had a few threads out of the lug nut. I also verified that if you were to remove the spacers the stock lugs nuts would still fully seat on the longer studs.

:cheers:

I forgot to mention the fact that the wider stance looks killer too, haha.:bigthumb:
