I think it'd look awesome on the shell with a spare tire and maybe a gas can up there! Also, perfect spot to put some back-up lights, driving lights, or a CB antenna!!!

if i put it on the shell, i'll have a hi lift and shovel mounted up there, some square offroad lights pointed back and off the sides. a 33 inch spare might be too much weight so high up, or might be too much for the shell to hold.

if its on the trailer, i will make a ladder to go up on top of it, it will hold extra gas cans, spare tires for the quads, coolers, wood. also i was goign to make some sides for it so it could be turned into a tent once we got to the campsite

You planning to get running water to the kitchen sink on that thing too?

I like the "off-road-rescue" idea with the hi-lift and shovel...either way I think it was a smart purchase and it will be helpful wherever you put it!

My first thouht would be to put it on the trailer, but after thinking about it, it may look good on the shell. Check and see if the shell can hold a Spare 33", that would look good.
