I am putting together my parts list and would like to tuck the tires in a bit more than my 18 JLUR. I had 4.5" backspacing with 37 13.5's with a RockKrawler 3.5" lift on it and had no issues.

I know I can use 4.75" backspacing but was wondering if anyone had run 5" backspacing with the Clayton Overland before on 37 12.5's? This is for a 21JLUR.

Looking for experience with this or similar.

Thx

I’d see what the manufacturer requires for the wheels with that lift to be sure it will fit, but I run 17x9 +12 offset which is about 5.5 bs on my 2019. Running a mopar lift with swapped rk 3.5 front coils. They tuck up in the wheel wells when flexing but do rub the inner fenders at full flex a little. Not enough to be bothersome, but they do. Here’s some pics when it’s flexed and some others to show how far they stick out.
