Ebay
2" Billet Aluminum Solid Spacer
It was like $100 including shipping

Its lined up to factory specs (or VERY close) but the tires still have a tilt/angle to them which is no doubt putting more weight/wear on the outside of the tire...(they are tilted out at top)...Wearing OK so far but only 1500km on them...The stock tires (even though they were garbage and the alignment guy even told me that my new BFG would have to wear better regardless) scalloped bad on outside....I posted specs on another thread that I am going to get adjusted too or even see what the guy thinks when doing it (as soon as I see the slightest uneven wear if any), on another thread I think its called "tires tilting out at top" or something.....

So your alignment was out from factory and not a result of the level kit, correct? I don't want to order one then have problems with aligning and wear. I have 1700 km on my bfgs now and no uneven wear that can be seen

I am not sure if it was from factory or not as I did not pay attention to my alignment and tires till after the LK install......I can't remember if my tires had a tilt to them before it or not but its an isolated thing.....I few other members stated their tires are also tilted out at top on front but their tires wear fine....And other have not mentioned it, checked or have it at all...Sometimes factory specs are incorrect too.....I have some specs from 2 lift/leveling companies now and will only adjust if tires start wearing bad, which they are not so far with 1500km on them, but will pay close attention o make adjustments if needed

What kind of fuel mileage are you getting with the 285 65 BFG's? Are you happy with them?

MPG was not affected
Truck also has a more solid and firm drive compared to the sh*t factory tires
Truck also sits 1.5" higher with 40psi which I am running

How does it handle? my tire calculator says its 1.6 inches taller and .4 wider so I think it would handle worse. I love the way they look!
