    Just out of curiosity, to run 40s what offset wheels have to be used?

    Depends on the width of the axle. I have a standard 68.5" width and have 4" backspace. Wider axle can get away with a smaller (larger number) backspace.

    So on a stock rubicon axle, a 17x9 3.5 BS will fit fine? With the factory fenders as well? Thanks for the help

    Other factors need to be considered as well. What size lift? I'm running a 2.5" lift with 2.5" bumpstop extensions. I had to split my factory fenders in order to get the clearance there. Width wise, you'd be good with a 3.5" backspace. Once you start flexing it's a whole different story.
    Also, that factory FAD unit will not like 40s. It will snap like a twig.

    Had to wait a few months, but they came in at the end of March. Good to go now!
