Looks like one of the more study products I've seen. The design seems solid and the price is definitely right.

What's got you hesitant about pulling the trigger?

My tire/wheel combo I am running, 16X8 wheels and 285/75/16's BFG M/T's. Now I know it would work, issue is I am trying to keep my cover on.
It's an Undercover, but I believe I am peeing in the wind sort of speaking.
I need to weigh out all the options.
I need to figure the width of the wheels, (inflated) to see how much clearance I would have. I believe the hold down screw bar will be the issue, but then again "don't know" and I need to do something, I NEED the full size spare.

The Flat Version of this for $65, right?


I'd want to see the topside and bottom side mounting plates. My TireGate Flat Mount is solid, about $155 shipped.



The Top Mounting Plate:



The Bottom Mounting Plate fits perfectly.


An included D-Ring on the Top Plate and a D-Ring welded on the V Bar allows the use of the included steel security cable to secure the V Bar and the wheel, or at least help deter theft:


I think the TireGate Flat Mount is well worth it, very high quality, high strength and good fitment. My bed is empty 99% of the time so I have no issues with the spare there and the wheel can be removed in 1 minute. I also removed the OEM spare from underneath.

I've got a solution for you if the tire fits in the bed by itself.

Figure out where you want the thing, mount 3 anchors in the bed around the tire, and use a Y-strap to hold it in place. Mine's tied into the cage but you'll get the idea:


Make sure those anchors are solid because there will be a lot of stress on 'em and I'd hate to hear that one tore through the composite bed. That issue aside, this should work for you.

KarTek (http://www.kartek.com) usually has the straps in stock. They'll know what you're talking about when you call.
