Once in Johnson Valley, we articulated the suspension and were amazed to see that our somewhat conservative hack job on the body looked pretty close. The backspacing on the Eaton rims is 4 3/4 inches. Any less and the huge lugs would mangle the rear sheetmetal at full stuff. However, we'll probably hack a bit more body and get some 3 1/2-inch backspacing rims because the tires tagged the front springs and steering box when the wheels turned.
