I cant think of a thread less appropriate to post that question since it is constant between 2006-2016 an utterly irreverent to this thread

Does the "Oversized Spare Tire Carrier option automatically come with the swing gate reinforcement option?

Worried my order did not go through correctly.

Can someone please confirm whether or not the 2 came bundled together??

Do I need to try and change my order?

Checking my build sheet, the reinforcement is code "XDB", msrp $895, and the oversized carrier is "TBZ" and listed as $0. I have this foggy recollection of the dealer saying that was automatically included on the order by getting XDB. I certainly didn't request it. I think you are probably good to go, but you can always have your dealers shoot you a copy of your build sheet.

Thanks. Called my dealer and they sent me a copy of my build sheet and both items are on there. So all is good. :-)

This was my concern, that you could have the reinforcement without the actual tire carrier, but both items are listed on my build sheet. So I'm happy.

Seems like a fair price to have it installed at the factory compared to the prices you show.

So sorry. There's a certain wheel I've been searching for. And this thread is the only one I follow. Figured some of the nice jeepers here could help a gal out. Sorry.

re: 2017 Wrangler JK Information Thread

Hi, im new to the forum. Currently have a 2012 wrangler unlimited. I see that many of you are ordering the 2017 wranglers. Now that these are being ordered can i assume there is no redesign this year??

No redesign for 2017. 2018 is the new JL model.

The response to your question did seem a little harsh. However, there is a huuuuuuggggeeee amount of variation in the ways and amounts you can lift your Jeep. Then, a gazillion different wheels, and then tires. Colors, sizes, shapes, uses. Some ride on the highway better, some are better off-road, etc, etc.

Start here or another popular site (wranglerforum.com, for example) and search for "lift". Read and start getting an understanding. It will be a little intimidating at first, but you'll get the hang of it. Reading that will start to give you an understanding of what to do about wheels and tires. And you can find places to buy this stuff all over the Internet.
