I've not seen pics, but a lot of car makers are doing away with a spare. Good way to save a few $$$ and save some weight too I guess.
that is correct I saw a pic...Just like the GC....(found the pics)Stratuscaster said:Trailhawk includes a full-size spare, per the PDF on Jeep.com - WHERE it's located is another question. I'm going to guess and say inside the cargo area, under the floor.
Not just that, but it would be an incredibly bad decision, on a Jeep. Imagine being 80 miles back into the Utah canyonlands without a full sized spare. It would destroy the AWD system if you had a non matching diameter tire.redwheelwells said:You DO win, Stratuscaster, but so do I---otherwise (a non-full size spare) it's a deal-breaker! I have always introduced the full-size spare into rotation---so a matching rim [unlike the steely (?) in the photo] is also a must!
In CA, it's illegal to not use them.Stratuscaster said:Some places (like Illinois) - chains are illegal to use anyway.
When they last tried that on a Jeep, the outcry was so loud that Jeep relented and issued an internal recall, to replace all WJ spares with full sized, identical wheel, spares. I had a Limited with the gold anodized wheel, about a $300 value, so it was an expensive change for them to admit to...TWX said:Well, the reveal pics show a full-sized spare in the Trailhawk. No idea if the other trims get that or not. The wheel doesn't match for finish with the other four, but for a spare that's not a surprise.
