Lost Spare

We lost the spare tire and wheel for our 07 Commander! Had it in for service and I noticed there was a large void area under the Jeep. Apparently the steel cable rusted through and the spare fell out. It had never been used. I don't need the special chrome rim. I've contacted the local salvage yards with no Commanders available to strip one off of. Looking for a inexpensive suggestion for replacing, prefer to remount as it was previously. Is this a known problem with the steel cable? Thanks in advance.

Been there - Done that

All that they list is an external mount. Not acceptable for our use. Thanks

Are you looking for the cable assembly or the rim?

All I saw was the split twisted wire hanging from the mount. So I'm assuming the mount that includes the cable and spare tire holder and a rim. I can get a new tire locally.

Just a thought, but I bet that the cable was cut and the tire was taken. The cable should not have rusted thru.

I agree with previous post, these cables would not rust through flying spare tires would be a huge liability for Chrysler. It was probably stolen. They can freeze up and never release the spare, but not just drop it randomly. Good luck on your search!

I have taken a photo of the split cable. I don't believe it was cut as it's to close to the car body for anyone to have had access to this area while the spare was still stored.
