37" spare locations

Post by Easttnrhino » Mon Feb 12, 2018 1:19 pm

Wonder what all options there are for 37" spare tire location. I understand a 35" will fit under truck (have not tried but that is what I read, got to be tight though) does it help to do away with heat shield? I saw reloader's Wilco carrier and I like also like Wilco tailgate replacement spare tire carrier. Damage wagon has hinted at a rear bumper with the room for a 37" under the truck. All have goods and bads, looking for ideas. Thanks

The tailgate tire carrier can damage your bed if you use your truck offroad at speed. Otherwise it’s made well. Strapt offroad also has an in bed tire carrier that’s pretty simple and nice

Other than toting it around in the bed or on one of those rear gate/roof carriers, there really is no other option.

Maybe against the grill like back in the day lol.

The 35 will fit if you guide it into position, have it deflated to around 18psi and have a second-hand help to tighten it up while you forcefully hold it in place. No need to remove the exhaust shield.

As for tire locations, I am working on something like this for in my bed and under the cover. NFab makes a solution, I'm looking to place mine at a slight angle, has to be below bed rail, but angled to conserve some space. And put the high lift and jack under the tire. Then my gas cans on each side.
