Definitely not on a stock 5th gen, they won't clear the rear fenders without cutting.

If that were mine, I'd be looking to put a rack of lights across the top to go full ham! : )

I thought my car was sitting uneven due to the weight of the gear for the TSDs (full sized spare + tools + spare parts) but I took everything out and bounced the suspension around a bit on the curb and I'm still not sitting level. The reference measurements I got from a stock 5th gen were 14.25" front and rear. With 1" spacers at both ends and rubber spring helpers added to the rear too I'm sitting at 15.75" front and 14.75" rear. So somehow I'm up 1.5" in the front and only 0.5" in the rear and neither of those numbers makes any sense. It's almost like something is limiting the rear (sway bar?) but then I would expect the ride to be terrible and that still doesn't explain the front.
