Cyclopse light.

What do people do about the 3rd light when you put a larger spare on the rear? Is there something to move it, or do most people eliminate it???

When I put my 33" spare on, the light peeks over the top, it doesn't touch, so I just left it.

A lot of Rubicon guys put a small circle light inside the hub hole in the wheel of the spare. Looks pretty trick at night, pretty cheap to do it yourself, or you can buy the kit, and you dont loose the insurance discout for a 3rd brake light

I talked to a guy about backspacing and he told me to run 4.5
He said anything else "she'll be dancing all over the road".

Because I dont understand, the smaller the number the wider they stick out?

The only time mine Dances is when we have a good song and the road to ourselves! Yes, the smaller the number the farther they stick out

If I run 33x12.5 on 15x8 rims, would I go 4.5 or 3.75 backspace? why?

3.75, there is no reason not to and it erases any doubt that the tires moight run on the control arms
