Decided to add 2" wheel spacers to the 79. The wheels had too much backspacing and I'm too cheap to buy new wheels. Not a daily driver and mostly local areas when I do drive it.

The steps I took:
1. Wire brush the surfaces to get the dirt and rust off.
2. Add anti-seize to the mounting surface
3. Loctite the spacer to the original studs
4. TQ to 100 FT LBS



The difference in the front is noticeable, the rear not so much. You can tell by the mud flap.

What does the wheel side on the front look like?? I only went 1.25 but I like how the dial is almost flush now. Yours at 2" i bet is very close. Or at least almost so You cannot see the hub, only the lockout.

Nice simple write up.

I'm running 2" spacers on the rear axle of my 85. They survived a 2200 mile round trip to and through moab, crossing the continental divide. No issues. I've got a set from the JY to go on the front. My cutout flares were the reason for the spacers.
