    Well I went ahead and lowered the spare since I don't need it, (have bed carrier and different wheels/tires) and man alive. I was surprised on all the junk that was hidden up and out of the way. Rocks, sand, pieces of road rubber.
    Makes one wonder how all that junk got up there, but I will say it looks a heck of alot better and open with out it there.

    Yeah amazing what our trucks catch off the roadway. When my low air pressure triggered my TPMS light, I had to lower it before the winter season. The top of the rim was filled with probably half an inch of road salt. I cleaned it out, flipped it so I could get to the fill valve & applied some alltemp grease to the mechanism. Plus I remember having to have my last spare cut off :eek: Agree its probably better off where we live.
