wheels are 3.75 in backspace as far trimming i had to cut the corners from the front bumper and removed appx 2in from the inner fender in the rear.
but i was a little premature in doing that since afterwards i did a tt on it and eliminated the rest of the rub it had. if i was to do it again i woudl have the tt first and then trim it if necessary

thanks alot. this makes me feel a little better about puttin on 33's after i do the body lift(already bought it just need a weekend...)

Very nice!

I own the same size of tires & rims and I recently did a torsion twist and I'm awaiting the 3'' BL and shackles.. I'm just wondering if you experience a lot of rubbing? I think I'm gonna go the same way as you with my '97 XLT
