Spare Tire Carrier

Is there a company that make a spare tire carrier that mounts to the inside lip of the bedrail? I am looking to put a full size spare in the bed between my toolbox and bed rail, but want to mount it and not lose to much bed room. I searched and couldn't find what I was looking for.

The tool box would be slid over ot the left and the mount would be somewhere around the front right clamp.

Thanks for the help.

I know I thought of that, I think I will end up making one. I just have to find a cheap used 32 to use as a spare and then I'll be ready to fab it up.

I would love to have one like this welded to the bed rail and mounted completely verticle:

i have my spare mounted inside the box, upright between the wheelwell and the front of the box, it fits, my stock size is 235/75-15. i used a small clamp that hooks onto the rail of the cap with a small eyebolt, and a junkyard "J" bolt,big washer & wing nut from a '70s chevy nova. never liked having the spare under the box.

Having had to change a flat in the dead of winter on a snowy 2-track trail, I will NEVER!!! store another spare under my truck. Getting that tire out from under the bed was not something I would ever care to repeat again. I would sooner use a chain or bungee cord in the bed than go through that unpleasant experience again.
