I was recently told that I NEEDED a -11.00mm offset for my 2001 ext cab. What does this mean? And is this the same as back spacing?

Offset and backspace are not the same thing. Offset is the distance from the mounting surface to the centerline of the wheel. It can be positive or negative. Backspacing is the measurement from the mounting surface to the back edge of the wheel. You can have the same backspacing on a number of wheels and get totally different offsets depending on the wheel width.

As Dell said, neither measurement assures fitment.
