He stated control arms, so I would assume he has a '13 or older (newer ones have radius arms). The control arm trucks are even more prone to rubbing than the newer radius arm ones.

That was my suspicion as well from the way he said it. That reminds me... i still need to go see if i can get Les Schwab to shove a full size spare in there...

Thats what happens when you use round fenders and wheel wells to cover the round things that go around. Instead of square. /facepalm

MPG seems about the same, but I've not reflashed the computer. Of course it reads lower, but speedo is off about 8-10mph now. I do offroad and tow a lot.

Its off by a percentage. Probably around 10% or so. So at 20 mph its not that far off, but at 80 mph, yeah quite a ways off.

Had to trim a lot of the wheel well plastic, had to beat back the corner of the metal, trimmed the bumper as well. I only added a 1.5" leveling spacer (for now). I do off road a lot and get full flex when disconnected. In that case, it does still rub a little. 37x12.50 I've heard have less rubbing. THE LOOK is perfect though. Here's the latest, since adding the rear bumper.

35" spare in factory 2015

Postby dkjager » Wed Apr 19, 2017 7:05 pm

Here's more detail on my spare: It's about 1.5" shorter than the Toyo's I have mounted (see photo). My "plan" is to air it up to 70lb which will bulge it out. I run 30-40 normally on the Toyo's, 15-18 off road. That should put them about 3/8" apart which I think is fine for dead heading home. Now, for mounting, you can see not much room at all. First you have to bend back the heat shield a bit (I laid on my back and pushed with my feet to get it done). Next, when you jack it up, be sure it is flat to slightly up towards the hitch (back) and frame (driver side). To mount a 37x12.50, a worn down one, moving the hitch back may work, plus, you'll be touching the heat shield and muffler for sure.
