Stock tj rims backspacing

Whats the backspacing on stock tj rims?

I'm looking at getting some new rims, I prob wont ever runa tire wider than 11.5", would 3.75" backspace rims be good or should I go to 4"

Say somewhere down the road I decided to go to 12.5" tires, would the 3.75 still work?

Backspacing on stock TJ rims is 5.5"

3.75 or 4 inch BS would be perfect with 11.50 tires. The 3.75 will still work with 12.50 as well.

You are on the right track.
