Most decent tire stores have a special socket to remove rounded off lug nuts (like this: http://www.brandsplace.com/0246-ken30115.html). Call around to be sure and then have it towed in.

just a thought

Jeep likes to use a thin metal cap over the lug nuts to make it look like a chrome nut. IF this cap is the problem you can remove it and use an 18 mm socket [instead of the 19mm]
