Default 20"tires - 17"spare?

I was crawling under my truck today and noticed that the spare tire is 17" whereas the truck has factory 20" tires.

The question I have: Is the correct? I know that many vehicles come with a smaller/compact spare and normally would not think 2x about using it. However my truck has a limited slip rear end and I would be very hesitant to out a smaller diameter tire on as I would be worried about damage to the LS due to the tire size difference.

That said, due to the factory trailer hitch, there is not much room if any for a bigger tire under there as it looks like the tire would not fit...

Are my concerns justified?
