Default question about back spacing

im sure this gets beaten to death a lot, but after going to the nor cal ranger meet (epic as all hell) and seeing a few rangers on cranked T-bars and 3 inch body lifts with 33s im thinking about doing this instead of an expensive ass super lift that wont be all that much better especially with limited funds. so my question is if i wanna throw it on 33x12.5 r15 rims what backspacing should i go? i want something that will have an aggressive stance but not too wide to make it look mexican, and i dont want to destroy my drivetrain and suspension from too much backspacing... oh and ill be getting 8 inch rims. pictures and specs of them would be nice.

on 8" rims, I would go about -20mm. won't stick out too far, and still look good. Maybe others will jump in with what offset they are running.
