That's my thinking anyway. Could be wrong.
If its a farm truck i definitely wouldn't recommend you pushing your wheels out, it would spray mud all over the sides. This is also purely 2nd hand research but there is supposedly no true side effects to running a high quality spacer. There are tons of horror stories but if you get to the bottom of it there is usually always the same 2 things, cheap spacer or improper install. You wont find much horror stories with Bora spacers

That's a somkin hot deal. I paid much more than that for the same set-up.

The 4x4 shop was first class though. No worries and excellent work.

I just called and changed the tire to the Toyo Open Country AT II Extreme. It has a mileage warranty and apparently it balances better from what I've been reading.

FWIW - I have had nothing but fantastic performance from the Nitto Ridge Grapplers. They balance out perfectly. Probably the best tires I've ever owned. Either way, they are made by Toyo in White, Georgia.

Toyo makes good stuff.

So you paid for the Level Kit separate and they are installing?

Correct. I ordered the leveling kit from Rough Country directly. I was going to have a friend help me put it on, but decided against it. I'd rather have the dealer do it so warranty isn't voided and if they screw something up they have to fix it.

Ok, cause those prices just didn't add up............Hell, their cost on those tires must be real good cause I don't know anywhere that could touch that.
