Spacer question

I ordered an RC 2" lift. What size spacers do you guys typically run?

They worked just fine. I still had to do the pinch weld mod, and the rear fender mod. You would have to do that with either size though.

Unfortunately, I don't remember where I found them, or what brand they where.

I'm running Spidertrax 1.5" on my XK, they don't have a 1.25"...

For a little bit wider stance

Actually, they do have 1.25", as I have a set. I think they are for the WJ, not sure. I have been mulling selling my 1.25" and getting a set of 1" from BORA. The problem with the 1" is I think the studs will be poking through. Not a big deal with stock wheels, but will hose me if I ever need the spare.

The 1.25 Spidertrax spacers are listed for a WJ but work great on a WK as well. Part number is WHS-006

I just wanted a bit more fender coverage for the tire and slightly less bloated (best description I can think of) look from the back. Hence went with the 1.25 instead of 1.5

Most people won't notice a difference either way.

1,5" with 17" JK rims and 265/65 x 17 Firestone Destination A/T's with OME medium suspension. Looks and works awesome.

I run a 1.25" Spider Tracs on a XK with a RC2", and Monroe Load Levelers in the Rear. Running 2015 Rubicon Rims and 255/75/17. No rubbing. I tried the 1.5" spacers and even though only .25" per side they looked like they stuck out to far. The wider stance did make a difference in handling at speeds above 45mph.
