    I want to use a 15x14 steel wheel with a front Dana 60 and
    I did a search and I came up with 3" and 3 1/2" backspacing to make this work. What would be best? Thanks in advance.

    <font color=blue>Go with 3 1/2, no less. My dad is using 4 1/8" on his 60, but it required a lot of grinding.</font color=blue>

    Just since we are on the subject... I got to order up rims in next couple days... going 35x12.50 on 15x10's... what kinda back spacing should I get so the tires stick out just a bit more then stock... kinda the standard lift truck w/ 35's look I guess.
