Sway bars are connected, MLL's are installed. I'm not sure what you mean. the rear is on flat ground. But, the front driver-side wheel is going up the hill, hence the compression on rear passenger-side.
I see it. was just making a stupid observation that it looked like you were leaning sideways on flat ground lol

Then i took a sheet metal screw (black)and screwed up the back inner side of the plastic to the fire wall. did it up high enough to not catch tire by accident. and sunk it into the plastic to it was flush. Then took rubber in a can spray and shoot the exposed frame (in my case the silver paint showing where you cut) make sure its even and take a piece of card board to scoop up the drips.. when its done you can hardley even tell i cut it.......

you would still run into the problem of width with the 285/65's if there's any problem at all, as long as you dont full lock the wheel all the time and your alignment is good i think you'd be good to go.

Hey guys im new to jeeps. I have a 05 limited 4.7. With the stock chrome rims. I just ordered a rro 2.25 lift. Will i be able to fit 285s on the stock rim? And if so will i still be able to go offroading without scraping out my fender walls? If im on an angle or rocks? Or blasting through some mud? I searched some threads but couldnt find the answers im looking for thanks!
