I can get a set of american racing wheels for real cheap. Backspacing is 4.5 though. Will that work with my setup??

For a 3.5" lift 32x 11.50's is the largest you want to go with out cutting the fenders. With the 32's you will still have to do some trimming to the front bumper and hammer in the pinch welds inside the wheel well. 4" of B.S. would be better. The 11.50's will still probably rub the lower control arms a little when turning. Maybe you can find a skinnier 32. I had either 3.73 or 4" of B.S. with 4.5" and 33 x 12.50's they never rubbed on the control arms. I didn't have the stock bumper though.

That's as big as you can go stock without cutting and that would not work well at all off road with the swaybar disconnected. The tires would go right up into the fenders. A 2" BB would work good and give you room for articulation.

Well I believe that the stock rims are something like 5" of B.S.

Haven't updated in a while. I bought new black headlights, corners, and bumper lights, all led interior bulbs, led license plate bulbs, and installed an alpine head unit. I'll have pics up soon. I'm going a little different with the gauge cluster leds. Gonna be doing Amber instead of the usual red or blue that everyone seems to do. Gonna start collecting parts for a f>r lift and new wheels real soon

Here's a quick pic of the new lights. I'll get better ones once the snow melts and I can give her a good wash.
