i like racks on the cab with a tire mount. sometimes an additional gate on the tailgate works.

its supposed to under the truck.. but its actually sitting with about 30+ other tires in the field. usually i dont carry a spare with me.. prolly cuz its not on a rim.. but hopefully its going on the truck today.. well thats the plan!

my new 33" spare is in my bed with my old 235 spare. haha anyone want the 235? :P
im gonig to make a tire gate, or make a jimmy style swing out gate over my tailgate, haven't decided yet, might keep the gate and and build one that closes over the tailgate...I love that GO!Rhino bar, but dont want to lose my bed space, its limited enough with my tool box, but that thing is a life saver!

mine is in the side yard. only take it out when i go wheeling or on a road trip. other then that if i do get a flat around town, well i have triple A, lol. it jut takes up a lot of space and slides around in the bed. i have a cable with a lock through it but it has some slack so it allows it to move.
