Ok I want to get my trail spares out of my storage box and permently mounted. First thing I need to do is come up with a way to keep splines, bearing and seal surfaces from rusting. I'm thinking of a thin coat of paint and take my chances of the paint hurting the bearings and seals. Next question is where to mount them. I figured some sort of bracket and radiator clamps and bolt it into the sides of the bed. Anybody do this and have some pictures to share? I think my spare tie rod is going under the truck. I'm leary of this location for tha axle shafts because of the amount of crud I would have to clean off before using them. Drive shafts a little of the same concern because of the U-joints. Pros and cons?
