"My JKU has a very basic setup, leveling kit, and 285/70/17's"
The tire thread is so confusing, haha. I hope you don't mind me asking, but I was told that 285/70/17s were the largest tire you could put on a stock jeep set up. Does this describe yours, meaning no back spacing, etc.? Also, did you use stock 17 wheels/rims?
