In my opinion over 4" is too much

It's all good. I'm no expert but I think 5.25 is too much

billytheyj That's a lot of backspacing I don't know if that would be too much for 31x10.50 tires....... backspacing is the distance from where the wheels mates up to you axle and the back lip of the wheel. This pic will show you how and it is courtesy of four wheeler magazine .

ou812 I run a 2" budget boost on 31" tires looks and performs sweet
I run stock 3:07 gears.on highways the difference is barely noticeable,offroad there is powerloss I'd like to switch to 3:73 or 4:11 to bring it back to stock feeling on power.
You don't have to regear with that combo but it would help.personally I problly won't regear it rides fine.I'm happy

Mamba Offroad Alloys - Type M2 can you tell me which 18 in wheels are best.
For the tires i was told to go with 265/65R18 can i go 275 with this setup?
