    One of the things that has been really driving me nuts lately, and that I know will eventually lead to a problem out on the trail, is not being able to carry a full size spare tire when you're running 31's or larger.

    What are ya'll doing to carry your larger tires? I really don't want to put it in the bed and give up half of my bed space, or lose my tonneau cover and run a dedicated tailgate carrier set up. Roof rack seems to be an option, but I'm sure it'll drastically raise my center of gravity.

    Look in Mods & Tutorials at the top of the page.. I think it's in the cheap mods folder.
    I believe you'll be able to fit up to a 33" tire.
