Spare Tire Pictures / Cargo Compartment

HI Guys - new guy here.

Just bought a 2014 Cherokee Latitude with Tow Package. 6,000 miles. V6 FWD with comfort & convenience package. Bought from a dealer who sold it the first time in September 2014.

From what I've been reading here, the TOW PACKAGE should have a full size spare.

Mine does NOT have a spare or jack. I'm thinking either the dealer or the original owner swapped it out with the air compressor + foam insert.

  • Is there a way to verify with Jeep that this vehicle should have a spare & jack?

AND

  • Can anyone post a picture of their donut spare & tray?
I'm not against the doughnut tire.... I kind of like the cargo area to hold stuff. The full full size looks to occupy the whole space. With the doughnut tire, how much room is left? I'll probably never go off road, this is only front wheel drive, so a donut would be OK to limp around on temporarily.



Thanks, John

Here is mine with the inflator (no spare or jack given)





AND someones photo (not mine) with a full size spare and jack.

OK, did some more checking around:

Mopar # 82214063 is the donut spare tire kit, $295.00 MSRP.

Here is one for $265.50 with free shipping, but does NOT have the tray.
Cherokee Spare Tire Kit - Mopar #82214063

- - - - - -

My Jeep has the OEM tires: Firestone Destination 225/60R17

Rim size / full size Size: 17" x 7", 5 Lug, 110mm Bolt Pattern

REFERENCE: 2010 Chevy Malibu or Pontiac G6 has the same 17x7, 5x110 wheel. Jack for spare - JeepForum.com

- - - - - - -

I'll check the local salvage yard for a spare & jack.


? Is the tray I have now (above) the same tray to be used with the donut spare?

And

Can someone check what size tire is on the donut spare?

Thanks, John

Re: Spare Tire Pictures / Cargo Compartment

Full size spare & jack does come with factory towpackage, your tow maybe aftermarket or installed by dealer which means your lacking lower rear end and extra cooling and will not have full 4,500 lbs. tow capacity. The tray will not fit with full size spare. This may also explain why you have the inflator.

Re: Spare Tire Pictures / Cargo Compartment

I think the full size spare only with the 4x4 because you need the same size tires on all 4 corners and the front wheel drive only comes with the donut spare. Im just guessing on this.

I have a Limited with ADII and factory tow. Limited comes with 18" wheels and my spare is 17" steel rim but the circumference is the same, so I don't have 5 same size wheels/rim.

Re: Spare Tire Pictures / Cargo Compartment

AR-BLACK, finely found this back door VOTS link that I have used before will get your build sheet. http://www.farkistan.org/votsws.php


Put your VIN in the one that says Build Link, don't use any spaces just numbers and letters, click on that and then it will give you a link below that will says, "here is your build link sheet URL: click on that and you should receive a pdf of your build. You can then see exactly what left the factory.


Credit for this information goes to another Jeep Cherokee owner that goes by the user name ptram on another Cherokee site.

Thanks! That is the most useful information. I was able to retrieve the Build Sheet (but not the window sticker).

my VIN shows::
160-amp alternator

Optional Equipment
3.251 Final Drive Ratio
Auxiliary Transmission Oil Cooler
Trailer Sway Damping
Customer Preferred Package: 2TJ (Pretty sure this is the tow package).

But does not specifically list the spare tire.

I'll contact the dealer later this week, and ask. I'm probably NOT going to get anything from them for free, as I drove off with the vehicle after being told there was "no spare tire because no one uses them".

Yep, tow package. My build sheet does say "full size spare tire".

Does the FWD tow package have a different final drive ratio than a 4x4 model? He lists his as a 3.251 Final Drive Ratio, but I just looked mine up and I have a 3.517 Final Drive Ratio.

EDIT: Mine lists full size spare as well.

It must, He did say FWD V6 hence the 3.251, I think it's the same for ADI 4X4 drive also.

Mine's an ADI, V6, and tow with 3.517 Final Drive Ratio. I'm just trying to learn more about the Cherokee. Learn something new everyday.
