    I don't think you are being open minded especially when several people are trying to explain. But one thing you do know, BS is BS. In your case, that's correct. Now, actual experience is not BS so take the challenge. Learn to read. Not the fake news but real s***. I also must be leaving now. Chow all........

    I have the spacers, and a -25 offset with a 3.5 BS. Didnt get it for looks, but for stance. That picture below, i wouldnt have been able to ride it like that without having enough stance, if i didnt i would have been driving on my side with the whole weight of the truck on it. Now, depending how you drive your truck, i am pretty sure you can Just break about anything on it. Did i want to get spacers? No. but i wanted to be able drive over obstacles without dealing with center of gravity issues and put more stress on one side.

    Yes i have rubbing issues because of it plus the amount of weight i have upfront which i am gng to fix stay tuned

    When you go LT, it is a must to have spacers, and these people jump their trucks and drive at high speeds, so yea, they will end up breaking sh..it... IMG_20190107_134032_028.jpeg

    By increasing the offset of the wheel, you place more stress on the axle’s studs, and in a front axle application on the unit bearings (or spindles) and ball joints of the axle. You also increase the tire scrub radius, changing the way the vehicle handles and increasing the difficulty of slow-speed turning. Also, by adding wheel spacers you are adding more components, and the more components, the more potential for failure. Make sure to properly tighten and torque all of the spacers’ bolts and nuts. Yes, it's the least expensive way to get the look you want. Kind of like using a leveling kit with spacers VS correct lift kit with coilovers. My son has had several lifted trucks with wheel spacers. Bearings were the first thing to go. But the trucks looked very cool. Just my opinion and not being negative as someone said who doesn't even no me.
