Happy to assist.
That size doesn't exist (the 75's). Just going by one mfr. the Falken Wildpeak for example in 35x12.5x17 is listed on their site as being 34.5"

Congrats. I'm sure you'll do great with it. When I was looking, I was seriously looking at the AEV kit with the brackets. I ended up with the MC kit even though I'm not doing a lot off off-road & rock crawling now, but I was planning for the future when I might want to when it's paid off & the warranty is out. I saw my MC kit as a good base to start from for a DD and work up by adding parts. One thing I didn't like about the AEV kit is everything is designed for the 2.5" of lift. If I needed/wanted more down the road it all has to be replaced. With the MC kit I literally only have to replace the springs.

Yeah, backspace and offset are two different words for the same thing, as best as I've ever understood.. Backspace is the word you're going to find mostly in the world of Jeep.

(Not exactly the same, they are different measurements, but they define the same basic thing only in different ways - If you're really interested in the definitions, google is your friend)

Sounds like the same set-up I am going to go with. Same 2.5" AEV lift, brackets, procal and 35" duratracs or BFG (tires still TBD), but I think I am going to save some money and keep my stock rims. Let us all know how it goes once you get some miles on it.

Make sure to get spacers for your rims if your doing 35 x 12.5 tires on your stock rims.

I have a 2.5" teraflex coil lift with 33 x 11.25" tires and I rub at full turn with no wheel spacers and stock rims.
