Isnít it against the law like everywhere to sell a vehicle without a spare tire and jack? Are you sure thereís nothing under the false floor in the back?

Iíve never heard of a spare tire ďkitĒ but Iíve bought everything from local auto wreckers before.

Sadly all it came with is an air compressor. The dealership suggested I get a spare from a junkyard but I'm told it won't fit into the spare cubby. So this is less than optimal.

Thatís a pretty poor dealership! If Thereís a spot for the spare tire , guaranteed one will fit. I would even have the dealer put the jeep on a lift and pull off a tire to see if a full size would fit in the area. That said, You may need a compact spare also known as a donut wheel, but you should be able to find one. Do you have an LKQ auto wrecker around? They are international and can usually find anything.

Not sure what has changed, but my son's 2012 Compass (Limited) has a full size spare.


Wife's 2018 Cherokee came with a donut, and I swapped it for a full size spare.
The 2019 TH came with a full size spare as well.


Measure the the space under the floor in the rear hatch. Should be "about" 17 1/2 inches,
large enough to store a 215/65R17... Again this is on a 2012 Compass...
