Backspacing for 33\'s and or 35\'s

i was wondering what backspacing you guys use when running 33's and/or 35's. i'm going to be running anywhere between 4" to 5.5" of suspension lift with 1" or 2" of body lift. haven't decided yet. also how much lift will i need to run 35's. i'm contimplating a reverse shackle spring over with 1" of body lift. thanks for your help/advice.

Re: Backspacing for 33\'s and or 35\'s

I run 15x10 rims with 3 5/8" backspacing for the 35x12.5 BFG MT's on my Scout. My Scout has a springover suspension, and no body lift, and I've done a fair bit of trimming on the sheetmetal. The body lift will help, but you may also need to either do some body trimming or lower the bump stops a bit (if you're doing a springover you'll need to fabricate new bump stops anyway).
