1.5" or 2" spacers

Hey guys i'm about to buy some spacers for my prowler. I want a more stable ride, and a meaner look. I want my tires to stick out far enough that my fenders don't keep getting torn off by snagging on stuff. I'm thinking about going with the 2" but will that be too much? I figure you guys out west would know a little more about this since yall do more high speed riding in the dunes. Does the 2" look good? Any advice is greatly appreciated.

im running 2'' spacers front and rear . i love them ! it did make the steering a little heavier but nothing i couldnt get used to in a matter of a few miles . ive had mine on since the month after i bought it in 09 and havnt had any problems . it for sure gave it a meaner stance. i dont think you would notice much differnece in handling or apperance on the 2 vs 1.5'' . IMO wider is better

Something to consider the wider you go the more leverage you have over the shock spring combo you are running.

If your running aftermarket wheels it depends on what type of offset you have. I am running 1.5 and it gives it a nice wide stance for stabality and adds a nice look.

I was against wheel spacers because the load on components. But I finally put 1.5 spacers on andI like them.

I like the 1.5 on mine, looks mean, handles well for a prowler, a lot more stable feeling. and will sling mud to the moon.

I'm running the stock aluminum wheels with 28" swamplites. With the stock wheel having very little offset, i was leaning toward the 2". Do you guys agree?
Sandchris, explain what you mean about the leverage. Are you saying its a good thing or bad thing? Thanks.

With stock wheels, you can get away with the 2" just fine. But if you are running aftermarket wheels with a wider offset like most ITPs have, then the 1.5" is a good choice.

You want to be careful with to much leverage AKA stress on the wheel bearing and other componets.
