That's good to hear, I plan on going with the same size. Did you do the pinch weld?

My spare does not fit though so I'm stuck with the original, how bad with a 3" difference mess with the traction and AWD system if I have to use the small wheel?

I aired mine down and trimmed the hitch to get it to fit. The difference in size will really mess up the drive train.

No, how much did you air it down?

So you obviously carry a pump to air it up then if you need it? Guess that's better then effing up the drive system.

Ya just a little $20 thing, and yes a lot better than wreaking havoc on the drive train. Hitch mod is pretty easy, just a saws all and safety glasses.
