07 Sahara and Rubicon

I have been searching for the answer as to why my owners manual lists an exception to putting tire chains on Sahara and Rubicon when chains can be put on other Wrangler models.
Is it because of the drive-train? There appears to be plenty of clearance.

When I had stock wheels and rubber on my Sahara, Chains on rear tires would probably have hit brake lines, etc. and tore hell out of stuff.
Once the chains were on, they were real close to the lines. Now with wheels that have 4.25" backspacing, I have lots of room.
