Jack and Spare Tire

Hey guys,

I just bought my first Jeep yesterday (2002 Sahara, 75K miles, I6, 4x4, manual).

For my life, I cannot figure out where is the jack and spanner for the rear tire?
(Owner said its under the hood) - any help will be greatly appreciated.

best,

In older jeeps,(YJ) they used to put the Jack and the spanner under the hood. Now in the Tj's they have the airbox there. Like rawkon said it's under the passenger seat.

Dont EVER use a hilift to chamge a tire. Not that it cant be done but its very dangerous. Always use a bottle jack for that. Hilifts are for recovery and about a million other things but not changeing tires.

I agree, I'd never use my Hi-Lift except as a last resort. My factory jack still works fine with my 35" tires. Not only do you have to jack the Jeep WAY up (unless you first strap the axle to the frame) to get the tire off the ground if you use a Hi-Lift, it's a lot slower too. I can have my tire off and a good start on mounting the spare before you could be removing the first lug nut if you used a Hi-Lift. I don't even carry my Hi-Lift any more. In 10 years of wheeling, often on the toughest rock crawling trails around, I've used it once or twice but never actually needed it.
