I did it without removing the wheels. Give yourself and hour, because you may need to move some lines. If you don't need to move anything, maybe 30 minutes. I did put a floor jack under the hitch and raised it a few inches to give myself a little more working room. Now I can swat the spacers in or out in 5 minutes. just one bolt on each side.

Got one side in and then almost got stung by a scorpion 🦂

Got about 1.5 inch of clearance without spacer and just had to bend one bracket a tad.

Did the passenger side this morning (no scorpions) just moved that bottom vacuum line down.

Only took me 15 minutes since I already had my tools out.

Guess I will leave the spacer out on the new truck! LOL It barely touched the axle with the spacer, but getting them out required me lifting the frame a little bit. Too bad the 1500 are black, the blue ones look pretty cool .

Just did over 2000 miles with them towing a 33ft Travel Trailer from Austin, TX to Durango, CO including some offroading and very happy with them!

Any updates from anyone. I have a small Toyhauler that I may be pulling from time to time. But I also throw a Standup Jetski on a rear hitch rack that will lower the rear enough that at night people think I have my high beams on. Considering these or airbags.

I notice those don't come with a axle perch to provide for flat surface contact, like the Timbrens.

They should still help a lot with heavy loads though.
