I been-a-helpin' you fixitmr!
Many of them are external spares, like I'm used to on the/ my CJs.
Maybe the external bracket was removed, and there is no spare (look for holes in the body and bumper). Some people were born dumb, and think their tires are invicible, till they have a flat, and realize they should have left it on there!
You are doing good! Insuring you are ready and capable, another good hint: make sure all of the lug nuts fit in your "tire tool", they are all the same size, no "locking nuts" and you have the correct jack and the lift-points are not messed up on the under-carriage. Nothing like having everything, but it is useless!
I did see one, towards the bottom of the link, with compartment covered with carpet. Can you send us a pic of the possible compartment? Maybe some closer--ups of the edges? It's really EZ to do!
Have you found any kinda Placard on/ under the carpet---I reckon you do not have an owners manual, it would say something there (I will see if I can view the owners manual online, I've had bad luck in the past on others)
I am more at home with the CJs, but I will try more!
