Trigger I'm really liking yours, the rest seem to take up a good bit of bed space.

I don't see why you would want to put your spare in the bed if it fits under the truck still?

Anyway heres my spare

That takes the least bed space of all. I'm tempted to go with that. Light weight and (I am scared to type this) how often do you get a flat?

Mine does not fit under the bed anymore, the hitch killed that.

Because my bigger tires come next week and its much easier for me to drag a tire from out of the bed versus from underneath AND because I want it!

you tell 'em Brenda! thats the reason i have a fabtech spare tire carrier in my bed. theres no way a 32+ can fit underneath my trucks bed due to the exhaust and receiver hitch.

it's bolted onto the bed of the truck, using bolts, nuts, washers.
it's great, but it takes away use of the bed. but, i never haul anything in my bed anyway.

That'll do you no good whatsoever when you rip a 10" gash in the sidewall while buried in a ditch. My last REAL muddin trip that happened, no spare, the river came up overnight and cost me a transmission in the end...

Live and learn...
