Depending on how much space you want, ebay is probably the cheapest. I know NAPA has up to like 1/4" in stock on the wall. Ebay has 1/2", 1", 1-1/2",2" ect.
I have 1-1/4" or 1-1/2" adapters on mine now. My DC's are a Ford 5x137mm pattern. When I called Auto Zone and Advanced Auto they all wanted around $140 if I remember for just one pair (2-spacers). I got all 4 for less on ebay. Your stock acorn style lugs may not fit in the lug holes. 01 and older has 1/2 studs which are cheaper, 02+ are a little more. About $30-$40 more for a set of 4.

You can get 1/4" wheel spacers from http://www.summitracing.com/parts/GOR-SP603/
35" won't fit on a 2wd with a leveling kit. You will probably need at least a 3-4" suspension lift.

I was getting 15.4mpg the other day on the highway. Riding around town 10-13mpg depending on how much my heavy foot stays out of the gas.

I am running the 18" Dick Cepek Torque wheels with 35/12.50 cooper STT tires and I checked today to see if I had any rubbing and turning lock to lock, It doesnt touch anywhere. I even pulled up on the hill by my house to get some articulation and still didnt get any rubbing though it got within a quarter of an inch of the front bumper then. So maybe the offset of the wheels is enough for me. But I will watch and see.
By the way, that is a BEAUTIFUL truck. I love the way the 35's look on them.

Thanks. If you have aftermarket wheels then you don't need spacers cause most aftermarket wheels have more backspacing than stock wheels. But if you run stock 20" wheels and 35x12.5 then you might get a little rubbing and will need to get some 1/4" wheel spacers. How do you like those Cooper STT tires?

So far so good. They are fairly new. I only have about 2000 miles on them so it is tough to say how their life will be. I have only had them in a little mud, and they did good in that. I have however been in a lot of sand, and they have done well in that. I expected them to dig more being a mud tire. But so far they have kept me afloat without having to air down.

I go down to the creek sometimes and the Mud Grapplers do great in sand. I had to pull out a Z71 with Cooper STT not to long ago down there at the creek in sand. He had dug down to the frame.
