Mopar Spare tire kit 82214638

Amazing that most new cars don't come with spare tires anymore. I see that the spare tire kit is back ordered by most online retailers and at the tune of $250-$300 to boot. I bit the bullet and put an order in, I don't trust the pump and sealant my new Jeep came with and rather not get towed

Yet another reason to get the tow package right out of the gate, when originally tow-equipped they also come with the full size spare too

Trailhawks get a full size spare as part of the trim as well!

Just thinking out loud with the full sized spare can you still drop the cargo tray all the way down or there's not enough room ?

Nope, it must stay in the highest position with the full sized spare.

zsc1991, is correct the full spare takes up the room for the cargo tray to be lowered. Someone posted about flipping the full size spare over giving you more storage but I have not looked at it to see how that works with the jack and stuff. I know I have some room under there to store a few things with the spare this is where my recovery strap lives out the way till needed.

Not bad. I ordered it with my Latitude and it was a $245 option listed on the window sticker.

Good deal on spare, smart.

I did the tire flip/ mod the wing nut on my trailhawk. It does allow for more storage. Simple and effective. The jack is on the side. This allows me to store stuff in the wheel well. I got molding foam stuff from hobby lobby and have a take down AR pistol and 3 mags in wheel. Its neat because it doesnt bounce around due to wheel mount and foam and sealed in metal rim. Also out of site but easily accessible.

You can do more with the space on the driver side if you got foam as the jack is on right. I have tourniquets and other first aid stuff.

If that's not your thing you could make anything that you like obviously... but ts effective use of limited space.

Oh, one other thing, I put a piece of 1/4 thick by 2" wide across top of wheel to displace weight of cargo in trunk so it doesnt crush weapon.

George

Eibeyer - Try not to get a flat while waiting for the Spare Tire Kit. I ordered mine in June through the dealer, and even getting Jeep Customer Care involved, and even with trying to frequently "stay on top" of my order, I did not receive the spare tire + jack until December. As previously noted, the kit does come with a full-size spare on a steel rim (same Firestone OEM tire that is already on my Latitude.)

I put my factory 18" wheel in as a spare. I was able to use the bolt and washer from the tire repair kit to secure it.

I changed some things around as a result of boredom and tinkering in garage... I think I am going to put a on board air system for deflating/ inflating tires when I go to beach and pumping up pool toys... you know, important stuff. I think it would be best under tire, so I flipped it around again.

I modified the factory plastic surrounding the spare, cut up some extra weightlifting foam floor pads from the gym at the house, and made form to keep stuff in place.

By modify I mean cut stuff up with a hacksaw blade... not rocket science.

But it's fun. I have a little rifle, 90 rounds, tourniquet, pressure dressing, and then all the full spare, jack, and needed tools. The on board air will be fun.

Give me good ideas!

I'll start a thread and see what people think. Maybe someone has a better idea. Pictures in new thread.

Really you can just build the 5th of the same 4, as a full size spare. For less than 200 including tire/rim setup. And include it in tire rotation, just more toward SUV than car-type approach I'd say may work too cheaper as well. TPMS sensors might come pricey in some regions less or more...

I like this idea but wonder if a truly full-size spare fits in the space. Has anyone tried this? I figure the "compact spare tire" must be compact in some way, in width if not in outer diameter...

I wanted the tow package right from the start, but according to the dealer, the kit was not available with no estimate of when it would become available, also no price for the kit either. It was the same for the spare tire kit.

I ended up getting the tow package installed at U Haul. Looking around for the spare tire kit, I haven't found any site that has it in stock. Is there a 3rd party option for the spare tire kit?

Well, like mentioned above you can just buy any old rim that has the proper bolt pattern, hub size, and offset and then add a tire with the correct overall diameter for your other tires. Any reputable tire and wheel shop should be able to set you up.

I would first maybe check with @jim010 though, I recently bought his four trailhawk rims and tires but he was also looking to sell his spare too and I passed that up because I already had a spare and I didn't need two, I just wanted an extra set of four rims for winter tires.

Here is his post on those: https://www.myjeepcompass.com/forums...els-tires.html

That is a good idea, but I would also need the jack and lug nut tool.

Bah, you can buy a cheap scissor jack anywhere for $15-$20, and you are better off with your own wrench. Takes a good pull on the flippin 8 inch long excuse for a tire wrench that comes OEM, not to mention far worse than getting the wheel off it is really hard for many people to be sure you got the lug bolts back ON with enough torque to ensure the spare won't come flying off a couple miles down the road.

For a measly $7 you can carry a nice 22 inch beam-type torque wrench that not only ensures you have ample leverage to remove the tire, but being that it is also a torque wrench you can drive off easy knowing you actually put the lug bolts back in properly rather than guessing with a stubby crap OEM tire wrench. The 1/2 inch drive socket you can buy individually cheap enough, but there is plenty of room its not a bad idea to have the most popular four sizes of sockets in case you stop to help someone else with a different car.

I always carry one of those inexpensive beam torque wrenches along with the most popular lug nut size sockets. The factory jack is fine since I already had it but any little scissor jack like that will surely fit somewhere under the floor panel. Could buy your own foam if you care about how it looks under there, otherwise just wrap the jack and tools in an old shirt or two. You are going to need rags anyways if you seriously intend to change your own flat tire on the side of the road.

I'm about at the point where I am going to have to remove the factory foam that surrounds the spare and holds the jack, I need those cubic inches for all the extras I like to keep with me. Have basic tools, spare fluids, heavy tape and big zip ties, jumper cables, tow straps, first aid, fire extinguisher, ammo... always be prepared!

I was able to find a scissor jack and lug nut tool locally cheap, so that is taken care of.

Perhaps I can scour some local junkyards for a spare tire, would first generation compass tire and rim fit on a 2019 model? Or even perhaps another model of Jeep be compatible ?

I'm told not, but I haven't tried. Maybe ask a dealer? They'd know the specs for the hub diameter and lug pattern.
