    I did a search and didn't come up with anything. Can ya'll give me some ideas on spare tire mounts for my K5. I have 33's now, but will need room for up to a 38 eventually.

    mont it on the tailgate. Go to the junkyard and pull a spare tire carrier from a bronco.

    Would it even mount correctly onto a Blazer/Jimmy?

    you can make just about anything fit with a little fabbing. I think the tire carriers on the broncos bolt onto the body so AFSAIK all you have to do is drill some holes put some nuts, bolts and some BIG washers behind the sheet metal so you dont rip it off.
