Re: What comes with the jack/spare tire area?

I didn't get a cargo net with my Laredo either. We are looking for one of the envelope type nets. Jeep/Mopar doesn't show any in their accesory catalog.

Only the Overland and Overland Summit come with the net. But Laredo and Limited owners don't feel to bad, even the almighty WK2 SRT8 doesn't come with the net.

Re: What comes with the jack/spare tire area?

Does anyone who ordered the plastic jack piece have the part number?

Also, the slot on the left side is for a hitch ball insert, which I have installed in mine. A 2 to 3.5" drop 9" length extension with ball fits perfectly into the slot in the foam. I have my 6" drop hitch ball insert in a padded hitch case stored in one of the plastic trays next to the spare tire.

Re: What comes with the jack/spare tire area?

What is the purpose of the jack cover?

Re: What comes with the jack/spare tire area?

Explained above in post #7. Protects the paint at jack point when using jack.

Re: What comes with the jack/spare tire area?

I believe that Jeep actually changed the design of the 2012 jack to incorporate the sames elements as the "cover" used on the 2011 models. For 2011, you use the jack without the cover for the front "pinch" welds, and then use the cover for the rear of the vehicle. The new jack is designed to be used for both front and rear.

For those that rotate your own tires (as I do), you may want to invest in a seperate Pinch Weld Bracket adapter that can be used with floor jacks. I bought one from Eastwood, used it last week on the fronts with no problems. For the rears, I have an old custom made flat steel bracket with a 3/8" pin sticking out the top. It worked great on the rear lift points.

I also quickly figured out out heavy the full size spare is when lifting out of the well! (I use the spare so I only have to have one tire off the ground at a time.)

I weighed that steel spare and it weighs 72 lbs. Even the stock 20's with the GY's weigh only 69 lbs. It is a back breaker (I'm getting old) getting that spare out of the back. But I still rather have it inside the rear area then suspended by a cord from underneath like many others vehicles. Can get messy laying on the ground wrestling a spare out from underneath the vehicle.

(1) You remove your hitch and (2) how the hell do you fit it in that tiny spot!?

How necessary are these things? I've been jacking up my cars for the past 10+ years with my floor jack without any issues. I've never had a Jeep or big SUV before, though.
