F350 Dually with 2" spacers on front to get F450 look?

A friend of mine has an 08' dually that he put 2"/ maybe 3" wheel spacers on the front and added the F450 flares. It looks just like a F450. So my question is, what are you'll thoughts on this? I have a F350 crew cab 4x4 coming in within a week and I'm thinking about doing this and putting on some bigger tires. Could this do any damage to the front over the long run? Any suggestions would be appreciated!

Anyone who runs the 22.5's like mine has to have adapters which is basically a spacer and you never hear of anyone having problems. I've only had mine on for a few months but no problems. I also have a Jeep Wrangler with spacers all the way around on it with no problems. I read on a Jeep Forum before I bought the spacers for it, that many people will say they are bad but pretty much in no way will hurt anything. I could see it wearing out your front end a little earlier though. I'm expecting that on mine at least since I moved the weight of the wheel out a little more.

Hi Schillster1-
Did you end up doing this? Putting the 2" spacer on the front end of your F350 to make it have the wider stance look of a F450?
Interested in doing this as well and would appreciate your feedback and pictures if you have them.
Thanks!
