    I hope you can find one. But as a poor alternative, consider carrying an air pump, and a tire repair kit(a good $20 version). I can fix a tire much faster than you can change a tire. Good luck,

    What about one of the ones that hold a tire standing up in the cargo area, sorta like a blazer, might be worth sacrificing some cargo area.

    Kevin if you find one I'ld love to know , I've got LPG too and had anti puncture gel put in the tyres, this was a complete waste of time as I couldn't get the wheels to balance at all so the X would shake all over the place at about 70mph . So the gel's gone and now I've got the spare propped up in the boot to one side ,held in place with a few elastic hooks . It was mentioned to me that the stud pattern on a Jeep might be the same as the Explorer and that the Cherokee might have a space saver type spare , I need to look into this as this might be a better solution if I can get hold of one . ;)

    Nope, can't fix a blow out. Never had one. I did make one assumption, that he wouldn't be offroading, hitting obstacles, etc.
    I have had one tire that I could not fix. Thus I have used my spare once. Once in about 150,000 miles. I am a Rural Carrier, and I have fixed easily 50-75 flats, on my own mail vehicle, while on the vehicle, on the route. Yes I have been fortunate, and yes I carry a spare under my 93 Explorer.

    Check into the inside mounted spares. The new right-hand-drive Jeeps have them new. Good luck,
    DonW

    I've never had a flat :rolleyes: Dosn't mean it will not happen. So I guess I've been really lucky too.

    Anyway, so one on the board used a aftermarket one from a S-10 Blazer. There are also the type that bolt on to your bumper, however they look horrible I think

    I have a 33" spare in my cargo area upright.. You should have no problems fitting one in there as well. Then again I also have onboard air and a tire plug kit.

    Spare wheel carrier

    Hi Kevin, I've just returned from Krakow in Poland where I photographed a spare wheel carrier mounted on the back of an Explorer (pre 1998). It looked like a custom job but worked well. Contact me and I'll email the picture. I'm getting one made for my '99 Explorer. Dave :exp:

    Hi Dave,
    Sorry to bump an old thread, but do you still have the picture? Did you get one made for your Exp?

    Thanks
