New to me 93 YJ

Hi guys, I just picked up my first Jeep 2 weeks ago. It’s a 93 YJ, 4.0, 5speed, 137000 miles. There was minimal rust in the tub and surface rust on the frame. I’ve put POR in the tub and applied Dupli-Color bed armor. The radiator was toast so I replaced that, along with the T stat, water pump, idler pulley and serpentine belt. I also replaced the air filter, oil and filter, plugs, wires, rotor and fuel filter. After my lift is installed I plan on replacing all the brake lines, calipers, drums and master cylinder, which has a leak. I’ve ordered and received a Rubicon Express 4” lift, which I hope to have installed this week. I plan on ordering tires and rims today, 33” Dunlop Radial Mud Rover on 15” steel wheels. I’m not sure which backspacing to get on the rims, below are the specs for the two sizes I was considering. Input would be appreciated on the rims.
• Size: 15x8
• Offset: -19mm
• Backspacing: 3.700"
• Bolt Pattern: 5-114
• Rec. Tire Size: 235/75-15
• Weight: 27.2lbs.
• Finish: Black Painted
Or
• Size: 15x8
• Offset: -13mm
• Backspacing: 3.937"
• Bolt Pattern: 5-114
• Rec. Tire Size: 235/75-15
• Weight: 26.75lbs.
• Finish: Black Painted
Future plans include POR the frame, a new starter and replacing the gears with 4.56 and adding a Detroit locker in the rear and a Trutrac in the front.
I love this site. Thanks for any info.

I would go with the 3.7 whatevers. Most folks run 3.75 or around there...
