Additional info may help your chances. What year/model are they off of (rubicons are different than sports, 2012 are different than 2013, etc.) I'm looking for some 2013 Rubicon take-offs myself....

Your tires should be replaced every 6 years, regardless of wear. So I hope you don't hold on to that "new" spare too long before replacing it or working it onto the vehicle.

Yeah. Sounds like the TC was doing it's job trying to keep your Jeep under control. I don't know what you do to thank it, but I often try a pat on the dash and some kind words.

Yeah, sorry, I guess that was worded poorly on my part. That part I get. The part I don't understand is why the 3.21 axle is limited to 1000 lbs.
