does anyone have a 1.5\" wheel spacer

Howdy,
I would like to know if anyone knows of where I might be able to get a 1.5" wheel spacer. I've got a really nice set of f-150 rims that I have been running, but would like a wider stance. Okay I lied, I want to sling mudd everywhere and look like the swamp thing.

Re: does anyone have a 1.5\" wheel spacer

Something I just did was to cut the weld holding the center section in place, invert it, and reweld it back on. This gives me 2" of backspacing on the stock 5.5" wide rim, which is perfect for the front axle and the 32" Swampers.

You could do something similar only move it in more, I looked at some Jeep/Scout rims I have and they'd actually be easier.

Of course, this is not for the faint of heart. I do know how to weld properly (heat, penetration, cooling, length, and speed) and took the risk that the rims may not turn out "true". I took my time to make sure everything was exactly right before welding the center section back on, the rims balance fine, and are not out of round either.

Just a suggestion, but it'd save you some $$$, which I'm all for.

I don't have it in front of me, but I saw an ad in a recent 4X magazine that offered spacers built to your specs.

Re: does anyone have a 1.5\" wheel spacer

Redneck terms? It's a different "Redneck" than the southern "Redneck", so I'll try. We have our own "Redneck" dialect way downeast heah. Try to keep up...

<font color=red>Grab da rim n'cut da weldson da bahck. Poundit down with a hammah so its wheren'you want it, n'weldit t'gethah.</font color=red>

That's it. Simple, direct, clear and concise. Downeast Maine has it's own dialect from the rest of the state, as Max can attest, along with their own rules, laws, inbreeding (no joke), ethics, and mannerisms. It's not a bad thing, but if you don't understand it, it'll seem kinda weird. This is the region the "You cahn't git there from heah" originated as there are so few roads. In case you didn't notice, the words tend to run together, and the "er" is replaced with an "ah", among other things.

Make sense? In the northern part of the state it's different as well, they speak "Fringlish" up there, which is a mixture of English and French, or is it French and English. Less inbreeding, but definitely another country by irtself (all potatoes and no lobstahs).
