Hidden Trunk Storage

Hi everyone, new to the forum so perhaps this was previously discussed, however I couldn't find anything. I have a new 2016 Cherokee North 4x4 with the tow package (so a full size spare). I see that some models have a hidden storage under the trunk floor, I believe the technical name is a floor load support. I was wondering if anyone knows if it would fit with a full size spare, or if the full size spare takes too much room.

Full size spare will fit. If you got the tow package it comes with a full size spare.

Not 100% But i don't think there is room for the storage tray with a full-size spare. Congrats and welcome to the forum!

245/70r17 is really the biggest you can go and still get the cover to close.

I have a 245/75r17 in there but I had to air it down to 5psi for the lid to sit flat.

If you're talking about the storage tray that you can find in this thread ....
Spare Tire Storage Space

You cannot fit that and a full size spare at the same time. There's just not that much space.

Is the storage compartment the same size across all models? Also I would be able to put that tire size the "245/70r17" A/T, on my 2014 sport without any issues like rubbing etc?

To the best of my knowledge yes, they are the same across all trim levels.
