it would seem to me either you ran too low a tire pressure or you have too much toe in. google jk alignment and check it.

This isn't my tire, but this is what is going on. I did a google search. Peaople are saying anything from toe-in to track bar problems to a bent axle. GUess I'll take it to the dealer and have them check...it's almost time for an oil change anyway...

That's not my tire...but it IS what the tread on my front driver side tire looks like right now.

The dude that owns the Jeep in the pic had the same thing that I have going on and just put the bad tire back on his spare for the time being. Which is probably what I'm gonna have to do, too.

That sucks, hopefully not all your tires are like that. I would definitely let the dealership know about it, and maybe they can replace them for you.. Good luck.

Yep. $200 for the adjustable tire carrier, and $500 for the heavy duty hinges.

I went with just the tire carrier on mine, but I may need to add the hinges later if I take too many departure hits on my spare...

It's $200 plus your grill or $300 for one of mine. So yes for $100 difference you can keep your old grill.

Those prices are retail. There are vendors selling them at a cheaper price.

I would've gone with the tire carrier on my PS bumper if I've known that I was going to go up to a 35" tire. But, to me, the hinge makes opening the door easier than the tire carrier then the door. And the total weight (rear bumper + hinge) ended up being much less than the PS rockbrawler rear bumper with carrier.
