Funny I haven't seen any "I have xxx miles on my spacers without failure."

Wheel spacers will and do put extra stress on your ball joints & wheel bearings. I had 1.25" spidertrax on a couple setups and they will. To be fair, your not using your Truck like I do my Jeep unless you are towing.

There have been plenty of issues with spacers...just read around, not just here. I ran them for offroad use only. Lost my scrub radius, so steering sucked ass.

Don't get me wrong, this isn't going to happen overnight, but will happen.

Oh run them, by all means. I would again if I bought good quality spacers/adapters, torque to the proper settings and use the Red thread sealant.
When people have issues with them:
-cheap knock offs
-improper installation
-Overloading (which your factory lugs could snap off too. I have seen 8 lug wheels come off)
-bent studs (I had this happen on all my wheel spacers)

I also had some pretty good mileage on my unit bearings and ball joints before they failed (100K+ on unit bearings). Not bad for a rock crawler...
