Newby trying to make sense of all this...
I just bought an '08 w/ the trail package, thinking I was getting an off road outfit. Being 6'6", had to find something I could fit into, this was on the lot, very nice outfit. Made the mistake of not researching before buying simply because I wasn't even thinking of a Jeep. But it fits me, and the imports didn't.
Problem is, can't find tires in the original 245/65R/17 in an eight ply rated, which have served me very well the past 18 years or so. I drive a lot in cactus, and don't like flats. One dealer has told me he can fix me up with 8 or 10 ply wranglers, another said that there's only one tire in that size that's not a 4 ply, and that's a 6 ply Firestone something or other.
I really hate being this ignorant. At 64, I don't want to fiddle around with lift this, spacer that, cut this, bend that, all I want is a dadgummed truck that won't get flat tires every time it looks crosseyed at a little cactus. Is that too much to ask? If it is, will someone please just say so? If not, what's a dummy to do?
Thanks in advance.
