Does a 285/70/17 spare tire fit underneath?

    Hello everyone. I am new to this forum and this is my first post. After reading many hours through threads on here and collecting a lot of very good information I purchased and installed a Toytec Ultimate lift kit and 285/70/17 Firestone Destination MT and black XD Addict rims.
    This weekend I will be taking some pictures and introduce myself in the New Member forum.

    Now I have the bigger tires I would like to have a matching spare and was wondering if it would fit underneath where the original spare tire is?
    I used the search but couldn't find an answer to this and hope you guys can help. Since I have a Leer camper shell on the bed and have the bed set up for camping I would have to purchase a roof rack and put it on top of the shell if it doesn't fit.

    Thank you!

    There are some tabs that prevent that size from fitting undernieth, but those can be cut off, and it will fit.

    Thanks guys. I will remove one of the front wheels this weekend and try to fit it.

    Looking at the regular size spare that is there now I think it could work, the only concern is that it looks that the exhaust will be very close to the tire.
