Yea I know. That tag is an original tag from the 80s. Back when it was just starting out. It was my dads before I added it to my truck haha.

If I could do it over I would have gotten the Bilstein 5100 shocks instead of a 2 inch spacer. The ride is much better and they are adjustable so you can pick the ride height.

Nothing saying you can't do that now, and re-sell the spacers on here or ebay. You could probably get 75% of your spacer cost back.

Just fyi if you are set on 17" wheels, the toyo mt doesn't come in a 285. And with the practical vs overkill thought, mt's definately border that line.
