Full width guys how wide are you total?

What combos are you guys running axle wms to wms, Tires, and wheel backspacing? Also total width?

My Trailer is 81in between the fenders.
Im trying to stay at or under 81in.

My D44 is 65in wms to wms any suggestions would be great.

Front Ford HPD60 is 69.25" WMW-WMS

Rear Chevy second generation FF 14Bolt is 67.5" WMS-WMS

I have 2 sets of tires. Both sets are sticky compound non-highway Krawlers (Red Label KX's) . 39x13.50x17 and 37x12.50x17

Wheels are Walker Evans beadlock 17x8.5 I forget the exact backspacing but as a guess 4.75" - 5", it was critical due to using the Artec Ultimate hysteer arms. The wheels barely clear the hysteer arms by ~1/4".

With the 37x12.50's mounted, the front is ~83" wide. My trailer is 84" between the rails.

Thanks for the info.
I figure if i go with 8in wide wheels 4in back spacing 12.50 tires i should be around 77in to 78in depending on the section width of the tire.
65 +16 rims =81
81- 8 back spacing =73
12.5-8= 4.5
73 +4.5 = 77.5 overall width
Is that about right?

Front Axle - HP Ford D60 WMS 70" Rims Allied 5" back spacing (custom built) Tires 43" Inerco SX Stickies. Section Width 14.2. Overall 84.2"
Rear Axle - Ford D60 WMS 66" Rims Allied 5" back spacing (custom built) Tires 43" Inerco SX Stickies. Section Width 14.2. Overall 80.2"
(Those were my calculations during the build)


My trailers both have 82" between the fenders. For my open trailer I built drive over ramps installed on the deck next to the fenders so I don't crush them while loading & unloading.
For the enclosed trailer I back it in since the rear is <82".

Chevy Dana 60/14 bolt. 69" WMS IIRC, procomp steelies w 4.5" bs. 37x12.5 military tires, 83" wide.

I currently have a 81" trailer but I'm about to upgrade to a deckover trailer as I will be upgrading to 40" tires soon and I hate switching tires just to get on the trailer.

I'm at 84" with 43's with an 82" trailer.
Built these a few years back out of scrap 2x6's. Made them just long enough so that the F&R tires rest against the ends once loaded. Exactly positions the Jeep and helps keep it from moving once loaded and tied down.
They are a bit taller than the fenders so the weight of the Jeep stays off the fenders while loading and unloading.
Could also be make of steel or other material of your choice.

78 60 Ford front, 80ish Chevy ( front ) 60 rear 3.5" offset rear 4.5" front. With ( bald ) 39" iroks I'm in the 84" range with 8~9psi, but when I drop around 2~3psi that bottom bulge really pushed against the fender wells.

So that's something to consider is to air up for a smoother fit onto your trailer.

I don't have a trailer, but I want one for my heep for long trips. With current mods, I'm now a bit wider (12 inches) than my YJ started out. I'm filing this under "things to remember" if/when I have the long green to purchase a trailer and it's a bit too narrow. Great idea.

You have to start somewhere to get to the middle of nowhere.

Thanks, but my rig is just a Prince among Kings. You folks gave me the answers to build it!
