Yes it is a Reese hitch that fits many models of cars. I can put it on with no problems, but I can't get the full sized spare out in case I had a flat without removing the hitch. I was hoping the smaller "toy" spare would work.
Can you post a picture of this hitch? I have never seen a hitch for the Nitro that required the removal of the spare. I have 20" wheels, and the 20" factory donut takes up most of the room.
The only Nitros that came with a full sized spare had the factory tow package, unless that is only with the 20" wheels - probably to save money. As long as the bolt diameter was correct and the donut fits around your brake caliper, I do not see why it wouldn't work.
