Question

I posted a question about tire size of last week (Thanks all for the info) and upon further inspection found that it looks like the body is offset in relationship to the frame about 1/2 an inch towards the left in the rear. The front appears to be centered ok. Body mounts look in good shape. Anyone have any experience shifting the body to correct something like this. I have done mounts on pickups but not Wagoneers. Will the body move that far by loosening the mounts?? TIA Kerry

Is the body sagging toward one direction? If so it's probably your leave springs.

My GW has the same "feature". Just chalk it up to Jeep quality "control"; if the tires were somewhere under the body, it was good enough.

The bed of my J-4000 is not centered, it is about 3/4 of an inch offset to the drivers side. I am hoping that it is just the bed mount, but will find out when I put on the body lift.
