Going to have to do a bit more trimming as there is still a small rub that sounds like a card in the bike spokes when doing a quick, lock to lock U-turn lol
 
Trimming complete. No rubby even hitting my driveway bump w/speed at full lock. Glad i found my cutoff wheel! And yes i cleaned it up and hit it with black paint so it looks much less noticeably bobo lol

After a quick shot of spray paint.

Also, words to the wise, put a thin layer of anti-seize on the back of the wheel spacer before installing to the hub. Keeps the two from fusing together over time.

Looks awesome ! I am wanting to order Bora spacers today. I would like to do 1" or 1.25". I do not mind shaving the factory studs down, espacially the smooth tips of the studs. What was your experience with the 1.5" spacers? With the pockets on the back side of the factory wheels, what amount of shaving of the factory studs am I looking at with factory wheels and 1" or 1.25" spacers ? Thanks for the feedback.

Great looking truck you have. Love all the front end lights and bumper.

Thanks man! But honestly, I didn’t even check to see how much clearance there was since the factory studs sat flush with the end of the spacer. If there are pockets on the backside of the wheels, then I would imagine you would be fine with 1.25s. Amazing that I’ve had my wheels off like 10 times and never noticed them having pockets. I think there is a forum post from someone saying 1.25s will work without trimming the studs. I would definitely go for that versus having to shave the factory studs.
 
Have had to trim a bit more of the plastic after flexing a bit during this last week's trip to the mountains. Once I've had a chance to fully flex offroad and determine if any more trimming is necessary, I'll post the final results/pics for anyone interested. The pics above have plenty of clearance for those just wanting "the look" but for those who wheel, there is a bit more trimming needed.

P.S. I havent had good luck with heat guns as they always seem to puff the plastic back towards me in the opposite direction of what I want. I have very little patience so i just cut and ask Qs later. Those with more patience can def make it look better than i did.
 
I installed my Bora 1.25” spacers today. I LOVE the stance. Doesn’t look modified, just looks better than factory.

Used anti-seize on the mating surfaces. They are a tight hub-centric fit. Used blue loc-tite on the studs holding the spacers on. The factory studs stuck out .325 inches. There is a .49” deep pocket on the backside of the factory wheel that clears the stick-out. No grinding the factory studs down with 1.25” spacers.

125ft.lbs. lug nuts torque

Next week I will get the blacked-out true beadlocks wheels installed. Stoked !! Going to run a brand new set of factory 35” tires. Staying 18’s & 35’s.

Better photos today. Mild off-road and no rubbing.

If you drew a straight line down to the ground at the widest point of the black plastic fenders, the tire is just a very small amount outside that line (wider) up front and even with the line out back.

1.25” Bora spacers
No factory stud cutting needed, with factory wheels.

Looks great! Thank you for taking the time to make these posts.
 
How does it ride compared to stock with the spacers on? Also did you get an alignment after?
Rides identical. You wouldnt even know they're on there. And no alignment is needed assuming your alignment was good before install...

It is no different.

Getting these factory bead locks mounted up and then swapping them out Saturday Am. I’ll check torque on the spacers while swapping out the wheels.
