    Has anyone mounted a tire of this size in the stock location under the bed?

    I just noticed a little tab in the front that prevents the spare from moving forward, not sure if there's one at the back to. Didn't see it.

    Thanks!

    I didn't have to make any mods and a 285/70/17 fits in there...not necessarily perfect, but it holds pretty well. I may have to cut those tabs eventually, as soon as I stop being lazy.

    What I did is put jack againts the tab and push it up until it bends. In that way, I don't have to cut the tab. I did it on both tabs. My 285's fits well with no problem at all.
