I can't tell if you are overly pedantic or just dense.
I think I quoted the wrong person, so my bad.

I'm not saying your wheels are going to fall off, but it's disingenuous to say that the wheel bearings/etc. aren't stressed more due to the additional torque on them from the wheels moving 1.25''+ away from the hub. It's detrimental to those parts, but if you're OK with it then it's fine.
Unless you know how much more "stress" is being applied, you cannot say it's detrimental or even significant enough to discuss. No one is arguing there is not an increase, but no one has any data to show on this topic other than our anecdotal testimonies from personal experience, which there being a lot of positive experiences gives at least something to go off of to make a decision.

So to keep the thread on topic, does anyone have any numbers to compare on the bearing failure rates (miles driven until bearing failure) of 5th Gen's that did NOT run spacers vs ones that did?

asides from the spidertrax, i had 3 other sets of spacers in hand. the selling point on the spidertrax was the quality studs they used.

other brands might be able to use ET style nuts to secure the spacer on, but they all had a very cheap looking finish on the wheel studs.

Thanks, I see.
I've got the same caster angles but it's still not enough on the back when off-roading. It keeps hitting the plastic guard right next to the body mount (not mud flaps - those are gone long ago ).
I was wondering if I can get more than 4.5?

I’m still totally on the fence on adding these—at least I was until I impulse-bought sets of 1.25” G-2s this morning and put them on tonight. Just had an alignment done today anyway so time to form an opinion of my own.

Here’s the garage pic as she sits now.

Looking at it a little closer tho, moving the tire out seems to leave the LCA and rear axel shock bracket slightly more exposed being further off the wheel/tire. (Hadn’t thought about that till just now). But then come to think of it, I’m overdue for a real skid anyway, so what’s a couple more pieces of armor? (That’s the spirit, right? Lol)

Anyway, I just took it out for a cruise tonight and first impression is it handles just fine. Can’t tell if I’m feeling or imagining a wider turn radius yet. Oh well, away I go just the same.

Edited to say: Dang the picture reorientation

Take that plastic guard and notch it on the inside where the tire rubs. The plastic guard is just hiding the pinch weld - it isn't structural or anything. I did it to the passenger side, but I still need to do it to the driver side. I'll probably hammer on the pinch weld a bit while I'm in there, just for a little added space.
