Spare Tire cover?
 
Is there a spare tire cover available for the spare tire under the jeep?

Re: Spare Tire cover?
 
You can go online to places like quadratec.com or ebay to find tire covers. You want one for a 29 or 30" tire for stock tires. You will most likely have to have the tire dropped a bit, put the cover on then winch it up. Ive been thinking of getting one to use in winter to help protect it.

But the wheel is supposed to face up at the jeep so if you want to cover the wheel face (always seems to get nasty dirty) you can get 2 covers, make a hole in one to put the cable through, put the cover on then put another cover on the bottom side.

wouldnt it just get filled with dirt and water?

Thats why i said that i would do two covers. If you just cover it from the bottom then yes it would fill up. If you just cover it from the top your not really helping anything. In order for it to be worth while you need to cover it 100%. The mist under the jeep in rain and snow gets in amazing places.

Oh yeah, just what I'd want to deal with when stuck with a flat tire.... skinning a filthy cover off the spare...

The rest of the wheels are out in the elements, so why bother covering the spare?
