Purpose for space under the rear
 
I'm still a bit puzzled if the spare area under the rear is for a spare tyre or extra fuel tank..

Does anybody know what the intended use may be for?

Wait wait wait, your talking about the rear cargo area and then you lift up the floor panel in the cargo area, correct? If you are, you better be headed to the dealer to get your spare tire because thats where it goes.

Sorry to be clear under the car where a spare would normally go..

Yeah, I was curious about that too. Looks like Jeep could have lowered the floor in the back for extra hidden storage.

FYI, under the floor right behind the seats, there is the air tank for air sus.

Ya jeep could have allowed more room for a bigger spare. I guess you could weld some hidden storage there.

I was planning on seeing if I could mount the spare under there this weekend. I had to take the spare out get get all of my camping gear in the last time I went and that sucked.

I would assume since it is a Jeep they were worried more about departure angles and having it handing down anymore. Plus it would be more difficult to remove the spare if it were a deeper.
