Pics of 3.5" Backspacing

I'm looking for pictures of rigs with 3.5" or so of backspacing, preferably with 35x12.50 or 37x12.50. Thanks guys!

37x12.5 Nitto Trail Grapplers on 17x9 wheels. 3.45in of backspacing if we're counting hairs.

Yea. I'm running 1.25" spacers. Unfortunately, I couldn't find a wheel that I liked with the backspacing I needed while staying in my budget. Got about 1000 miles on them and no issues though, no rubbing either.

1.5" spacers on Smoky Mountain wheels (been told same backspacing as rubicon wheels) with 35x12.5 Toyos. Been needing to rig centercaps to fit, spacer prevents it from seating all the way.
no rubbing with teraflex S/T3 lift, but did rub slightly at full lock with no lift.

Pretty sure the factory wheels are at 6" of backspacing, with 1.5" spacers you're only looking at 4.5" of backspace. I'm looking for setups with 3.5" of backspace. Thanks for the reply though!

All factory wheels are 6.25" BS, so you're at 4.75" with the spacers.

I went with Teraflex. I've dealt with their customer service in the past and they were surprisingly helpful and honest so they made me a fan. They also have a lifetime warranty.
