    Gonna be running a 37 tire and need some ideas on what to do about a spare. Whats the maximum size that will squeeze in the stock location inside? Im thinking its a 35 b/c my 33 that I have now is kinda tight as it is. I cant sacrifice the bed floor to lay the tire there. Ill eventually go to the tire on the swing out bumper route but this summer I wont have enought money to do that so I need to find a temporary solution...

    i would try for a fullsize spare even if its dry rotted or bald.. because thats just not good for rear ends, especially with lockers to run different sized tires..

    I run 38's and I have mine mounted on a pre-runner tire carrier for now til I can get a tire carrier for the rear bumper.

    Bungee cord it to the roof. /forums/images/graemlins/wink.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif

    Or get a little lawn mower trailer and pull it behind you. /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thumb.gif


    Seriuosly, just flop it in the back until you can build a swing out carrier. Or build the carrier now, credit card debt is the wave of the future.

    I might just consider taking the rear seat out and floppin it on the floor for now. I do have a speaker box to contend with as well. Either that or build a platform so the tire can be under it and everything be on top. /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif /forums/images/graemlins/thinking.gif

    I have a 10" sub between the seats and a 12" sub just under the tire in front.
