Joking aside, this is a TJ running 40" tyres with a 2.5" lift.

I think it was angle of that photo. There is plenty of clearance in the back. This is built by a company specialising in kind of a set-up (http://www.rokmen.com). This is a side on photo.

Those 40s fit surprisingly sweet for only a 2.5 lift.
Aren't those alloy's the double sided beadlock type.
