Or can they be taken off easily?
The dealer removed it on my 2013. It uncovered a sea of beautiful metallic black paint.

Have likely been removed? Or are they no longer offered at all? I thought it was just an early production thing and that they'd be available after the initial run. I could've sworn that I read that somewhere.

Milous has mentioned several times in the MY17 Features thread that there has been no additional evidence that 20s will be offered on the TrailHawk since the original potential offer long ago. No internal memos; nothing. So at the present time, it seems unlikely that they will be something available from the factory for that trim level. Honestly, that makes sense given how this particular trim level is being marketed...

I've had my Trailhawk for a week now. It's my first GC. I have owned 4runners prior. So far I am very happy. Haven't been off-road yet but hope to before the snow sets in here. The hemi Is a definite performance improvement over the v8 in my last 4Runner.

Re: 2017 Trailhawk reviews, let's hear em!

I'm checking back in this thread to say that I absolutely love this vehicle. And every passenger that's been in it loves it as well. A few mods have been done so far including Pod lights that aren't in this photo. The ride is great and it handles just fine off road!

I hate to beat a dead horse but...I don't think this ones dead??? I know Milous has the inside scoop and if any knows he does and I totally respect him. But check the link below...style number 31 is the 20" optional wheel for the 2017 Trailhawk. Then if you scroll down farther on that page it also shows the same tire as what comes with the 18's comes with the 20's in a P265/50-20. This information comes from the sponsor of this site. Also listed is a part number (5XJ101XFAA) in which is a valid part number and you can order them. I'm not sure how long it would take to get them but they appear to be out there....well somewhere anyway

Anyone know anything?

Milous maintains that site, too. And sometimes information that was anticipated early on doesn't necessarily come to pass. I think that's the case here. The option was expected but hasn't materialized. It's sounded like he's keeping his eyes out, but not seeing movement on this by Jeep.

That's what I was thinking...if you go to the link I sent about the wheels and scroll to the very top. Then Click "Table of Contents" then on that page scroll all the way to the bottom and look for the "Wheels and Tires" link next to it, it says "updated" and this just happened a few days ago. I don't know exactly what was updated but all of the information for those wheels are there. I would think if they weren't going to come to fruition then they would be deleted from that page.
