I think spacers make a huge difference, as far as appearance. I think the stance of a stock commander is too narrow and vertical.

Let us know if you suffer an ill side effects, so others can make a more informed choice when considering this mod.

From what I've seen posted, the Commander handles spacers up to an inch well, no one has complained of any ill side effects.

I would think its "possible" the little additional stress may wear joints on the supension or wheel bearings a little sooner, but you'll still be able to go a long while without having to replace those parts. I wouldn't be shocked at all if there isn't a noticeable shortening of the life of those parts either.

There is a picture posted,, and as for I'll affects I'm not worried about anything I re torque the wheels and or rotate every oil change so I'll just check the spacers too and as for more wear and tear being an inch further out I can't imagine it is any more stress than having a bigger tire or an aftermarket wheel with a bit more off set than stock, with that being said
If there does happen to be any minimal life shortening that happens down the road the ride quality and improved handling and look It has now make up for it,, but I will keep posted if there are any problems ever

I've had them on for about three years now with stock tires and still haven't replaced anything up front, still completely stock, except the sway bar bushings and links, but they were worn before the spacers.
