How will these fit?

Hey y'all. Finally got some tires. 33x12.50 bfg mud terrains going on a 15x8" wheel with 3.75" of back spacing. I have Warrior shackles, add a leafs, 2" TT and 3" body lift. The tires look big. I dont have the wheels yet but are these actually going to fit without tons of fender hacking? I'd really rather not have to cut much. has anybody else run this setup? how much did you trim?

is there really a big difference between a 3.25" backspaced wheel and a 3.75" wheel? I found a deal on the 3.25"...

Thanks, but I've seen that already. I want to know from people that have done it if/how much they had to trim

I think but don't hold me to it but think that most people have only maybe had to trim the inner fender well..
