Re: Attention JGC Overland or Summit owners....

I have 275/65R18 STMaxx on, they are fine in park, but rub a little at full steering lock. If I have it in park height I tend to manually put it up to normal height before maneuvering in car parks.

Re: WK2 DownUnder

Absolutely, or perhaps its a jump jet or a tilt rotor, the riddle doesn't say. With more detail an answer may be determined, but the question does what it is designed to, generate arguments.

Re: Tired of waiting, so pulled the trigger

Yeah, one downside is they do make it a bit harder to get in and out of the car, have to step out and over them. I'm not having any success using them as a step.
