    Just put the H1 wheels on the truck and was always told that I needed 4 inch spacers to go up front to keep the tierod ends from rubbing the rim. When I look at it it doesn't appear that I need 4 inches, maybe 2 is all I need. I was woundering if anyone else ran spacers and if so what size. Thanks. Heres a pic of the blazer now on 40's.

    I can't help you with the spacer issue, but I like the looks of your truck. I love those military beadlocks. :D How much does the front hub stick out from the rim?

    I don't think anybody around here runs H1's on SRW axles, everybody I know of either runs recentered wheels or stock H1's on dually axles (my personal set up).

    Stock H1 rims are approx 7.5" backspacing, so it depends on personal preference where you want your wheels to sit. Your steering arms and tie rods won't clear with the stock 7.5" of backspacing, so you will either need DRW hubs, 2-3" spacers on ech side, or to re center the rim.
