"Nothing is a five minute job"
No lie, just ask my wife. Every time I work on the JK it takes 5 times longer than what I tell her it will.
We have been running spacers for +/- 50K, so far without issue. I installed them with red thread lock at 100 ftlbs. Every 5k, I rotate the tires and check the spacers to 90 ftlbs. So far, so good.

Just my opinion, yours will differ.

I've been running RC spacers with no problems. I re check torque when I rotate tires and have never had a problem with even one nut. With all the problems this country has, unbelievable law makers have nothing better to do than write wheel spacer laws. By the way, that fender flare held up well even though the wheel flew off!
