Will this fit past the spare tire on a Jeep Wrangler to reach the hitch?
It is pictured on a Jeep Cherokee which has the spare underneath, but looks to be back a ways from the tailgate. I'm hoping this will fit my Wrangler without modifications. here is a link. http://www.gearbuyer.com/products/swiss_cargo-lugano_hitch_mount_4_bike_rack.html

Free video on how to fix a flat tire in a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica Touring 3.5L V6. Complete instructions for using the jack kit and spare tire in a 2005 Chrysler Pacifica... Most Chrysler jack kits include the jack, a jack handle and a lug nut wrench.
The spare tire in a 1996 Grand Cherokee is supposed to be bolted on the inside the rear trunk area, on the drivers side, not underneath the Jeep as you think. The only thing under there taking up all the space is the gas tank. If it's not in the back, then you don't have one. The jack and tire iron are located under the rear seats.
if the lugs are a closed top lug, they may not tighten down enough to secure the spare. if they are the open top/hollow lugs they should be able to tighten down the spare tire rim. so, if you have the closed top style you may want to get a set that are the open top or hollow style so you are able to tighten down a spare rim when needed. this is what i did when i ran into this issue with my 99 grand cherokee.
From the owner's manual for that model, see link below also, page 299 of the PDF has a nice picture.
Spare Tire Removal
Fit the jack handle extension over the drive nut. Use the
Lug Wrench to rotate the nut counter clockwise until the
spare is on the ground with enough slack in the cable to
allow to pull the tire out from under the vehicle.
The winch mechanism is designed for use with the
jack extension tube only. Use of an air wrench or
other power tools is not recommended and can
damage the winch.
When the spare is clear, tilt the retainer at the end of the
cable and pull it through the center of the wheel.
I had a similar problem with an 88 F250. Measure the tire height with tire standing, then measure space between hitch and measure frame from same place.
If the space between the frame would allow the tire to fit without the hitch, you need a wider hitch. If your current hitch has room for the tire you are all set.
Usually a heavier class hitch will have wider mounting points, but be aware that access to put in bolts may require you to weld the hitch to the truck.
Changing tires on a 2007 Jeep Wrangler is no different than a typical vehicle. Any local service facility can help out.
If you are wanting to do it yourself:
1. Break the torque on the lug nuts while the vehicle is still on the ground.
2. Jack up the axle using the jack in the trunk (under the panel in the trunk floor)
3. Remove the wheel and tire
4. Replace with the spare or a new tire
5. Tighten the lug nuts to 85-90 ft-lb of torque, make sure you tighten in a star pattern.
1) If you want performance in the rain, you need an all season tire.
2) I had 31x10.5 on my Jeep.
3) The vibration could be a bad steering damper.
4) Dana rears are almost ablong shaped on the cover. The other is perfect round shape cover.
5) Tell your wife the Jeep is for her.
