alang_z33 Don't forget your new front driveshaft too. What happens to your oem driveshaft when you put a 3+ life on your jeep

New Rubi mods - Lift+Wheel question

Hey Everyone,

Just signed up and wanted to get some feedback from you guys on the work I plan on doing.
I just picked up a 2012 Unlimited Rubi and want to get it lifted asap. It will mostly be used as a daily driver, but I'll be doing some trails too (80/20).

I just picked up an AEV 3.5" lift, on order, and now need wheels and tires. I'm stuck between 2 wheel types:

Rim Size: 17x8.5
Back Spacing: 3.6"

Rim Size: 17x9
Back Spacing: 5"

Question (sorry if they come off noobie):
1. Does the backspacing matter?
2. I want to run either of the wheels on Duratrac tires. They should fit both, right?
3. What other mods do I need to get this setup running?
4. Which of the 2 rims do you recommend?

Trying to find these tires in toronto, sucks!. the M/T are on backorder and the AEVs are priced a lot higher. Any recommended places for online?

Thanks for your help!
