I remember there being another hole behind the license plate if you had to drop the spare with a body lift.
But it isn't going to fit a 33 anyway. I kept mine in the bed of the ranger (with a canopy), and for the sport trac I kept it on the roof in a yakima megawarrior basket.

What kind of ATV? Couldn't the spare sit in the front of the bed, and the ATV tires fit around/over it?

I have a kodiak 450 that takes every foot in lenght. To put it in the bed i would have to live the rear of my kodiak on the tailgate and i already have had a wire breakage on the tailgate cable and didnt like the feeling at all plus it remove to much weight off the front wheel. I have to do a little but of offroad to get to the camping place with the kodiak in the bed. Ill see what i can do and post the result after if im able to mount something under the bed. By the way the spare is going to be 33-10.5-15 so the height its going to take is the same has my stock 31-10.5-15, i just have to find 2 more inch on the side.

P.s. here the truck all loaded up for a week trip of atv

Try driving over 1 wheel well. When I load my grizz in the back that's what I do. Then there is enough room for the ramps to slide underneath. It gives you more space on the side of the bed. It is enough for me to throw a large jerry can beside it. You might want to try putting the tire standing up in the bed, near the foot wells. Just lash it down with a couple of tie downs, and you should be good to go

Looks like a nice Kodiak tho. What is it a 00-02? I cant see the front

The tire rack thing's cool, but you could make something similar pretty easily.

Mine will hold up to a 36.
I could also mount it the other way and have the tire hanging out the back.

the kodiak is an 03 but with a custom front. Nearly broke my wrist once in a hole and decided it was enought of the low flat front on it. I mainly do rock crowling with it had to reinforce all the place i could.

Here's mine lol, Went a little too fast and slid off the road. Ive torn it down completely, at it looks like ive only bent the front a-arm racks and bars and every single rim lol. There is a big bore and stroker kit going in it. It will punch it out to 763. It is my baby.

I tried it with one of my 32's and it looked bad sitting below the frame rails.
