nope...no front hooks.

I agree.

It says these are the 20 inch chrome ones:


They look different than the previous chrome one's. I'm wondering when we'll actually see them in picture form/on the Jeeps in person. I know it's supposed to be November, but who knows if they'll be delayed.

Okay, that clears up the badge mystery! One less silly badge to eliminate from the exterior!

Fuel Tank Skid Plate Shield
MichelinŽ Brand Tires
P265/60R18 OWL On/Off-Road Tires
Skid Plate Group
Tow Hooks
"Trail Rated" Badge
Transfer Case Skid Plate Shield
Underbody Skid Plate

Really, it's the best $275 I ever spent on a new vehicle. Are 20's really that important ON A JEEP!?!?
I can not agree more, and if you really want 20s you can add them

Re: Quadra-Lift w/ 18"s or 20"s?

Just as you'll find buses at bus stops, so it is that the offroad package has offroad tires, even if they give a nod to onroad use.

Some folks would like Overlands with 18" normal all-season tires, rather than offroads or 20 inchers.

Re: Quadra-Lift w/ 18"s or 20"s?

I not that fond of the design of the 18" wheel, and prefer a painted wheel to a clear coated aluminum finish. My experience with the Jeep wheels is that they corrode rather quickly when the clear coat becomes nicked exposing the metal below. However, I'm hoping that in the future A/T tread tires will become available in the 20" size that is speced. Right now, you need to go oversized to a 32" tire to get these. With QL, that may not be a problem...sort of an adjustable lift kit.

Nitto makes a pretty sweet A/T tire available in the 20" rim size...i think they are the nitto dune terrain or something like that

Re: Quadra-Lift w/ 18"s or 20"s?

I meant the 265/50 stock sized 20" tire. I haven't seen an A/T in that size. I'll look for that Nitto though.

They have this in that size as an XL rated tire: http://www.nittotire.com/functions/t...=terragrappler

What is your experience with Nittos???

Yea the terra grappler was the one I was thinking of...

I haven't tried them yet but I have been looking for an A/T in the 265/50R20 size as well and thats what I have found so far.
