Towing with wheel spacers
 
I have '08 WK CRD with spidertrax spacers. Going to be towing a 23ft car trailer from Virginina to Texas. I am getting it on a scale tomorrow but weight should be around max at 7500lbs. Sould I pull the spacers off the back or leave it be. I am running a rc lift and monroe LL shocks. It pulls fine around town but I am unsure if I want to take the risk of runnung them that long with that much weight? Cannot pull the front ones because of the jk tirs on it.

I would think the spacers actually help from a stability perspective. If it were me, I'd leave them on.

That being said, if you have large tires, you may be adding more sidewall flex, that increases the instability, that would be a bigger problem than the spacers IMO.

2000 miles down with 11700lbs combined weight and spacers. No problems.
