I see that your 35's rub your upper arm as well. Have you found a solution? I am going to try some 1/4" spacers on the Explorer to see if it helps. On the Ranger I was rubbing with a 315/70R17 BFG AT on a wheel with 4.5" backspacing. I don't want to spring for new wheels with a smaller back space only to find that it did not help. My 33x10.5's on a 15" wheel with the same backspace did not rub the upper arm at all.

Yea i have 15x8 with 3.75 bs and the tires are 12.5 wide. I definately do not want a skinnier tire or have my wheels stick out more so basically im stuck with that scuff mark on the uca forever :/

What is the wms width of your rear axle? How well does it match the front? I got a 9" with 66" width and i never remember to measure how wide my truck is in the front when my wheels are off

Hmmm... I was hoping that a 3.75 backspace would cure the problem. My wheels are 8.5 wide and my tire is just under 12" wide.

As for my axle, I think that it is 65.5" wide wms to wms. It matched the front very well. I think that the rear was less than an inch narrower at ride height.

Oh i got them off a guy in cali who totalled his dbr ranger, he bought his kit when dixon just used extended shafts in stock ranger joints but a couple years ago sent one back to be rebuilt and got the 930 setup on the drivers side.

Sooo i have one of each. BTF said they finally have a machine shop working on the adapters which would be nice so i can use the 14" of travel that i paid for

Im hopefully fixing my rear bumps tomorow so i can go try it out but the weather has been gross here for a few days now so all the sandy whoops are just awful. Itll probably be 2 months until it dries out.
