'97 D1 5 spd

In the rear, it has OME HD w/1" EE spacer, Rovertym upper/lower shock mounts and 12" short body Bilstein 7100s. Looking to move up in tire size from 245/75 Dunlop RTs. Trailing arms arm also Rovertym, the rotated-up pinion angle, does pull the tires closer toward the front.

I have close to full UP travel in the back, bump stops are cut down polys, ~1-1.5" taller than stock.

Looking for inputs on those with this rear suspension set-up -- will I see internal wheel-well rub with 235/85, or on door arch -- is it solvable by cutting. Re-cutting the rear quarters again is expected.

I've got the same rear setup as you as far as spring and spacer is concerned. I went from a RTE setup (cones & long Ranchos) to a OME (standard rear OME, lowered shock mounts, retainers). I have never used bump stops. With the skinny 235/85, I've never had a problem with rubbing after the slight trimming in the rear portion of the wheel well and pushing the fender out a 1/2' or so.

The 235/85 is only 1/2" or so taller in the wheel well than the 245/75.

Half a foot! Wow, that seems a little extreme!
