    I am running them on mine. I don't know exactly how much but I think they are 1 1/2" each side (not sure exactly, they are the exact measurement to get the tires front and rear to stick out the same amount). They are pretty beefy and are made from billet. I got them from a buddy that owns a local tire shop. I picked em up for $60 for the set.

    I have been looking around, biggest I can find in the 8 lug flavor are 2" wide.
    Usually made of aluminum.

    I did find some at the junkyard on a 14 bolt that make it so the face of the wheel sits roughly even with the flanged end of the axleshaft. Apparently some older ambulance conversion have them. They were made out of some sort of ferrous metal (forged I'm guessing), but the junkyard man insisted they were part of the axle that couldn't be removed, and he wanted $300 for the whole thing. Yes, this is the same junkyard I got a D60 front at for $150. *sigh*

    I'm running 1.5" spacers on mine. I think it adds alot to the look/stance of the truck.

    Mine look just like that, only they are 6 lug and aren't quite that thick.
