3.75 to 4" backspacing I believe. Make sure you have good tread on this M/T but also it wont fit 33" with 2.5" lift, unless you trim some too.

Inferno Girl is running 33" Duratracs with nothing but a BB, so it can be done. Won't be the best setup for offroad, but you should be fine on the street.

I was running 32's with NO lift and I even wheeled it once like that too.
You don't need any more lift or trimming.
You most likely will rub when turning the wheel all the way. Get some rims with backspacing like mentioned above. You can still drive it just keep in mind when making U-turns or tight turns it will rub.

This is a 2.25" Procomp suspension....I'll be adding a 1.25" BL in the future.
Thanks!

If you offroad and it appears that you do, 2.5" is not enough lift for 33x12.50 tires, I would add 1" somehow, perhaps by installing a 1" body lift. I know some run 2.5" with 33" tires but they rub when offroad, that much lift is only suitable for 33" tires for a street Jeep. The actual recommendation for 33x12.50 tires is 4" of suspension.
