what is cj backspacing?

I want to know what the backspacing is on a stock 80 cj-7 rim? what is a good backspacing to add some width on my narrowtracs? I want to get the cheapo rock crawlers but i need the back spacing, any help would be appreciated.

Well, it doesn't look like anyone is going to answer this, sooooo

15x5.5=3.5inches of backspacing
15x7=3.5
and
15x8=4 inches of backspacing. (most likely on the pre81 CJ's)

In your case, a set of widetrack axles would be the best (IMO)
OR a set of 15 x 10 rims with 4 to 4.5 inches BS. if you want to run wide tires. It's really up to you.
