So what are you thinking for a spare tire solution?I went HC rear no add ons. Did this for several reasons. Wanted garage clearance and i get in and out my trucks bed for baby stroller and a tire swing would get old. If i didnt have those two things and didnt use truck bed or need to ever fold down tailgate and drive with furnature id be all for a duel swingout
I’ve seen a few others post that they just needed to relocate the mounting bracket like 1/2” to fit the larger tire. I’m still stock so i haven’t had the need to get under there to find out for myself.
Wow man thanks for the info. I might just run with that and save the money from a rear tire mountSo at first i did nothing. The tire shop i ordered new wheel and tire through put it up under with no issues. A few days later i noticed it was about an inch from exhaust and the tread of tire pinched the two retaining claws. So i chopped muffler which is really nice not hanging it up on rocks and i took a small sledge hammer to the two claws bending them back about 2” each. I then spraypainted them where i banged on them to prevent rust. Tire pops right up and is solid. Very nice knowing i have the correct size spare. Now i dont believe a 34-35 will fit im barely clearing now.
