Just got an 07 Off-Road and I want to replace the spare tire (the one on there is the original! Yikes!) but it didn't come with the spare tire kit. Can I just get any compatible kit, or is the OEM one special in some way? Thanks!

Just what are you calling a "spare tire kit"?
Jack and handle? Lug wrench?

I'm confused. :smile:

Basically I just need the little handle thing that lowers the tire. The rest of the kit would be nice (lug wrench, etc.), because the car came with nothing, so if I get a flat, I'm screwed, ha!

I got an extra set at a junkyard that I keep in my recovery bin/kit so I can keep the original set where they belong and not have to dig it out under my gear.

I'm sure you're aware that the OEM "kit" is stored under the rear passenger seat bottom, right?
;)

Just checking prior to you making an unneeded purchase.

For other future needs, a member of ours (Ramness) frequents pick/pull yards and often gets OEM items for sale here.
Although shipping something like the spare tire tool might be cost prohibitive.

The frontier one is significantly longer - to account for the overhang of the box. It will work, but it may not fit under the seat in the little tray. My fronty came with the handle in a canvas bag - that just gets shoved behind the rear seat.

I would find a Xterra one at a wrecking yard - or see if Ramness can find and ship you one. I assume you need the jack also? Hopefully he will also find the screwdriver for adjusting the rack cross bars - not that its a big deal but it fits nicely in the same box.

Yes, ha! I'm aware. There's nothing there and there's nothing under the cargo area either.
