I just found a phidippus audax (Bold jumping spider) female in my yard would like to know if she can get along with earwigs in a large Terrarium and if anyone else has experience with them

This could work assuming the earwigs are well feed. If they are not they will eat other insects or even other earwigs. If you were to put both in the bottom of a cup, then the earwig would kill the spider. Do you have a picture. I then could have a good idea as to whether they would kill your spider or not.

Oh, ok then that it is too small. I can almost guarantee the earwigs would end up killing the spider sooner or later.

TC Phiddipus audax venom is extremely potent. They might both die

Well if that may be, but if you have seen some of the earwig vs spider videos. The earwig just does a quick strike with their pincher's and it kills them. Occasionally they get bitten, but i would imagine before the venom took affect the earwig would kill it.

I think in a 1 v 1 she would win or they would both die because she attacks in a tackle and bite that is faster than the earwigs pinchers I saw her kill a fruit fly in mid jump
