Did it say you can't use them, or that you won't need to because now you own a Jeep?

It reads "tire chains may be installed on all models except Rubicon and Sahara"
Maybe because they are just more awesome. I have seem many videos of jeeps plowing through snow like it wasn't there.

Pretty sure it's because of clearance issues due to coming from the factory with larger tires.... I could be wrong tho'

Yeah looking at the tires they really fill up the wheel well.

Reading ALL the words really helps. The bullet point right below where it says that is the following:

Use chains on P225/75R16 tires only. P255/75R17,
P255/70R18, and LT255/75R17 tires do not provide
adequate clearance.

Note that the Sport (X) S also has P255/75R17 tires.
