The Mopar Beadlock has a backspacing of 4.4" (12mm offset). It is 8" wide in the beadlook config, and 8.5" wide is the beadlock config.

I'm having zero issues with this wheel on the MC 3.5 GC lift.... BUT... this wheel is a little on the narror side for the big Patagonias (recommended width is 11").
My mistake on the backspacing. I think I was thinking of the new AEV wheels at 5.8"

So here is a different question @Zenk , Does a 38in tire sitting on a stock tailgate interfere with opening by covering or making the tailgate handle less accessible? I haven't seen anyone mention that as a potential problem, but I'm curious.

Thanks,

Looks great @Zenk
Question for you: any issues running those mopar wheels with the MetalCloak lift? I think those wheels have 5.8” backspacing. We’re you able to use the MC front shock relocation brackets with those wheels? How about the extended rear sway bar links?
Thanks. I’m seriously considering this, but I’m locked into 17x8.5” wheels with 5.2” backspacing. MetalCloak seems to think 4.5” backspacing is needed to run their kits as designed.
I’m running the mopar beadlocks and 37s with the MC gamechanger. Everything works great and no clearance issues. Great combo

I’m running the following for now:
Rough Country - Spare Tire Relocation Bracket
Mopar - 3rd Brake Light Relocation Bracket

This is working well so far with the 38” tire, not interfering with anything, except rear view vision.

What wheels are these... width and offset?
They are Rugged Ridge XHD 17x9 wheels with their added rim protectors I had powdercoated. Offset I believe is 12mm with 4.5 backspacing.
Tires are 38 x 13.5 x 17.

Running the 130lb spare on the tailgate with no reinforcement... so far so good.

Sits level. I’m not seeing a need for any spacers.
