    Most of you guys probably already know but someone asked what fits in the spare well a while ago. I was in the same predicament looking for a spare that would at least match my overall diameter (33). It fits pretty well and just touches the tailgate a bit but you don't have to slam it. I think 33 is about as big as you can go though....

    Cool, thanks for the info (that was me that asked the question a while back). How's that 9.5" in width? Could you have gone wider?

    Wider? There is just a bit of room left. I think Taz says he has a 33 x 10.5 in there. In my spare well I think that would be a bit tight. I supposed you could air down a 10.5 and maybe it would fit in there.

    I was happy enough just getting a 33 in there. I didn't want to have to worry about switching the odd sized spare to the front and having to disengage 4wd. As I understand it that is hard on the diff. Im no expert on diffs though.
