I ran 1.250" spacers and am going to 1.750(need more clearance at bump stop mounts). I have no problems going with spacers this wide.
I use "Bora" spacers by "Motortech". They are more expensive than most and take longer to get(made to order) but I feel they are the best quality.

This is for the rear of the truck. The front of the truck is 10" over stock so I don't need them there.

No, my truck does not ride like factory. It is not due to the spacers,though.
I would not worry about going to this width or even wider. Just buy quality spacers.

Plenty of people use up to 2.5" spacers with no problems. Be prepared for any possible issues with the front tires rubbing.

I had 1.75" Bora spacers on my truck for about a year and there was no difference in ride quality that I could tell. I took them off when I got bigger tires because I had a little issue with the front tires rubbing in certain situations. Ended up never putting them back on and just sold them. I would not mind running them again but I would go with 1.25" next time.

Bora makes 1.25. i only saw 1.5 but ill look again. im actually on stock height so i am assuming you threw 1.25 spacers on your front and 1.5 spacrer on your rear with stock height.

You can custom order any size you want up to 3" from their website. I was lifted 2" front and back when I had them on the truck and had to remove the front mud flaps and "modify" the pinch weld to not get any rubbing on 32" tires.

Have you guys seen any evidence of premature wheel bearing wear using spacers this big? I know in the vintage BMW world this has been a pretty serious issue.

Um,, you'd have to go read Whistler's build thread. Do yourself a favor when you have time. That thing is NOT in any way a factory ride. He's done the Baja1000 in it. Parts of it at least. ::grin::
