Default 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Spare Tire


I have a 2010 Dodge Ram 1500 Big Horn edition. It came with an 18 inch spare tire instead of the 20 inch full size tire that is on the truck. I've heard the reason that a full size wasn't supplied is because the exhaust that comes out underneath the rear bumper is to close to the spare tire and would burn a full size spare. Is this a true statement?

Has Dodge come out with heat shielding that fits around the tire to prevent burning it?

If you need to run a full size spare (I pull a travel trailer) is the only option to reroute the exhaust??
