    right rear inside quarter panel....if I recall correctly there wasnt any other factory spot....
    I took mine and refabbed a new one and plated the floor and fenderwheel so that it could carry a large tire... stock one worked for up to a 31 inch tire but even that would tear up the sheet metal over time

    Only if it was pulled off of a newer model one. Want to buy one fro your 79? I ahve one if you want it, comes with the tire cover and all bolts.

    I don't mean to hijack your post, but I have a '72 with what looks like a factory tailgate tire mount. Does anyone know if this is sturdy enough to hold a 33' when wheeling? I am getting ready to take off the 31's and put the 33's.

    Thanks
