|JRoweMDN||I just recently had a buddy tear up the rear end on his truck driving home 50 miles on a 31 spare with 35's. The front swap is the ticket and go slow.|

YUP, the chances of a flat on the freeway, are greater than off road, unless you're airing WAY DOWN !

It'll work in an emergency, but
If you have a flat on the rear, you should swap with a front tire and use the SMALL spare, on the front to get you outta the badlands--
The front diff still turns, but outta 4wd--THERE'S NO LOAD ON THE DIFF.
Drive slow-if you still haveta use 4wd--GOOD LUCK-

According to Murphy's Law, you'll get multiple flats with the pee-wee spare, and never have another one after you drop some coin on a full-size replacement.

|FDWheelin||Yeah, and the last Jeep I owned had no spare at all. So I guess something is better than nothing.|

|Blue_94_YJ||I have the actual Jeep donut tire for my spare. Here's hoping I never have to use it.|

|FDWheelin||The only reason I didn't trade for a 33 is because he just didn't have any at the time.|

Running a not full size spare
I was doing a little trading at a local jeep junk yard and was able to get some great stuff that I needed and I was also able to trade the old tiny stock spare for a 31x10.50. The only thing is I am running 33x12.50's. I am eventually going to get a true full size spare, but for now will that 31 be enough to just limp me off the trail?
