    Have you consittered a swing out tire rack off the rear bumper ???? I've always liked the way those look, and how it free's up the inside.

    Don't know how much room it'd take up, but what comes to mind is the spare tire mount ya see in the back of the Pre-Runner trucks. The ones where the spare is mounted at a angle. Don't know if it'd work, just a thought.

    Re: Where to mount 35\" spare?

    I have a '78 model Jimmy and I fit a 35" spare in the stock location with the stock mount. It took a little time to get it just right and I aired it down some, but it fit. It rubs the tailgate very lightly and barely touches the seat. The spare was worn and probably measures more like 34" or a little less, but it is a "fullsize" spare none the less. /forums/images/graemlins/smile.gif

    A worn 35 will just fit stock location. A flat new one will also fit. Just need to have a way to put air in it.

    You could use the same on board air I use, it plugs into the cigarette lighter. It will not run an impact wrench, but it will air a tire up...eventually. /forums/images/graemlins/blush.gif

    My 35 MTR is flat on the floor behind the rr seat. I have anchors bolted to the floor and the spare is strapped the the anchors with two motorcycle straps.

    Re: Where to mount 35\" spare?

    I made the little bracket out of 1.5"x.25" angle iron and I tweaked the mount on the spare tire rack a little to sit flush with the angle iron. It needs to be welded I think, but that would probably be overkill. So far it has worked good, seat goes all the way back now and I think i have more room in the back than before too.

    Re: Where to mount 35\" spare?

    I keep mine attached to my roof rack. It isn't nearly as tough to get that up there as many may think. I am a short guy (5'4") and don't have any problems getting that 35" BFG MT up there. I am selling my rack pretty soon, if you're interested.

    Pic of it (the smaller rig on the right)

    I thought about it,but I rather have the tire inside,and away from the weather.

    This may sound stupid but why? The other 4 are outside the only thing I could see about it being inside(besides from the look) is it would be harder for someone to steel it &amp; theft protection is always a good thing
