Hmmm - a few years ago I took the current JGC out on a pretty tough 4WD trail. I lost a tire (OK, my mistake as I had not lowered air pressures enough) but having a full-size, fully OR capable spare I was able to continue and complete the trip.
If I'm going to change the Latitudes (oh crap ... now I've got a Jimmy Buffett song going in my head) to LTX AT/2 tires, methinks the spare should have similar capabilities "just in case". From what I'm hearing though, unlike my current ZJ the "full size spare" is not really "full width".
So I wonder if I'll have to go buy a "real" spare wheel. I suppose it probably won't fit in the spare well?
Color me naive -- I had just assumed all along that the new WK2 would have the same basic off-road worthiness of my current JGC and I didn't really find out about the street tires and undersized spare before I placed the order.
