Can anyone tell me what the backspacing required is to bring the rear tires out and even with the front. I just installed a 5"RCX kit and am running 33"/12.50/18 inch Nitto Mud grapplers and it looks dumb with the rear so much further in than the Front? Thanks in advance.

If you want rear even with the front your going to need wheel spacers on the rear, id recommend 1.5''

Thanks as it's the spacing I need.....is this a standard spacing issue or is it dependent on your wheel/tire/kit combo too?

Well from the factory the rear track width is about 1.5" narrower than the front. Lifting the truck makes it more noticeable, and your RCX knuckle lift spaces the front out about another 1" per side. 1.5" spacers in the rear usually even it up nicely. I run 2" spacers in the rear because my Fabtech lift spaces the front out even wider.
