ok, I need to get my spare tire out.. I was thinking something like this.. but I need a hitch first

http://www.jeepforum.com/forum/showthread.php?t=570883

but also the other day I saw a hood mounted spare tire on a Toyota Landcruicer ... but the heat might mess that up,, IDK..

well guys let me know other ideas also


PS. I do NOT want a roof mounted one..

Well I think that one is going to be pretty shakey on the trail. It needs to be triangulated like the bumper mounted ones are.
yeah I guess but well I can get that idea and do something like it with the bumper so I can triangulate it..

But our tires are significantly wider then those.
yeah yesterday I took the spare out and put it ontop of the hood and it does not look good nor has good visibility

well IDK, bc I need new rear leaf first, and that will be about 2x 112 = 224 plus shipping that will be real high maybe something around 50 to 100 bucks, bc those are heavy.. and cant be shipped via USPS IDK
