Just wondering who else is getting a 1 degree roll on their Jeep after the mopar lift. It’s been like this since I installed it and I’m curious who else noticed.

Fuel tank.
That’s what I assumed but with them putting stiffer springs on the passenger side you would think it would correct that. No biggy

Eat more BBQ?
Yes , gas tank , some of the aftermaket lifts have a thicker spring seat for the right rear to compensate for that giant tank .

If that's giant - what would folks think of my Ford dual tanks or my Silverado true 24 gallon tank?
I figured with the DRIVER in the left, compensating for a couple gallons of gas.............
I did wonder why the springs were opposite of what my cars typically had - usually they compensated with a slightly stiffer spring on the LEFT - for drivers like me tipping the scale at 205 pounds.
But my Overland has 439 (left) and 440 (right) rear springs, obviously slightly - very slightly, stiffer on the right. I found that odd. But I guess you just explained it with that HUGE MASSIVE fuel tank in there.

LOL - all seriousness aside - I was always going to ask - does one recalibrate things after leveling a JT? I mean if I took say 3/4" of rake out?
I plan on some spring swaps and it may change how it sits - front could be up a little bit - is there a way to compensate and recalibrate the sensors so it doesn't look in the gauges like I'm about to take off at the end of the runway?

I have a 1 degree tilt without a lift.
I usually tilt a bit more than that after a few drinks.......

Oh, wait - different tilt.

And you mean on flat, level ground, a road without a grade or crown to it?
Mine says 0/0 when parked on the level spot by my shop (not much can be called level where I live - it's all up-hill in every direction, coming and going)

Search back through the forums for the JKs and the JLs and you will find "The Lean" is notorious on both vehicles. Doesnt surprise me that its present on the JTs as well.

Depends on where on the planet you are - which direction you are facing.
And don't forget - the driver is on the right in Australia.

Yes. Like in a garage and even at the dealer’s service bay

OP, Tires all the same inflation? Does it drift while driving etc.? If not, I would say you are fine.
No lift on mine but it does read 1* in my shop no matter which way it is parked. Shop is new and def level.
