    Like one tire flat at bed level? If your going bigger than 33" it most likely wont clear the shackles.

    My issue was that with the 33" butted right up against the gusseting on my rear bumper my axle would make contact with the tire with all the extra uptravel. If I was still SOA It would have been fine though.

    pretty sure it's a 33 though. It's getting harder and harder to find MF pics


    EDIT: Fixed the pic

    originally it was different... dual spares angled towards the bedsides (the black truck)

    that truck has been quite the whore since it's original owner

    im only running 33x12.5...but it looks like it might interfere with the shackle? im going to switch to 12" before i do it, but i figures since the bed is cut up in the back from the fuel cell that i might as well put a spare in there.

    i dig that red truck...but dont want to have to re-do the whole rear bumper

    I'm doing mine like the black truck. Didn't want to redo the bumper or the gusseting work to the frame. The tire will sit down 6.5" below the bed surface, but still exposed like that one. That way I can stack a 2nd without it being in my direct view.

    the down side to having a tire that sunk into the bed is ground clearance. seems a bit low on the mullen truck. id be worried about puncturing it in a big dip or hard hit.

    atleast you cut the dove tail out of your frame. should be pretty easy for you.

    Mine won't sit down far enough to make contact with anything. But I have seen some that way, just need a skid down there.

    Rylee has the cleanest looking inset tire in my opinion.

    Yeah, the 35" tire fits nicely in there with room to spare. :)

    yeah that's what i figured haha. i can't decide if i want spares or a fuel cell in the spot you're talking about. im trying to figure out a way to keep the bed still functional with 2 spares and a fuel cell.

    I'm sure that Ford bed is considerably bigger then the taco bed though. Even that looks like maybe 2' of room left.

    Mine is that low on my 2nd gen. I have a skid just below the tire and it hasn't seen a scratch. Even when I was rolling around almost on my bumps.
