    Does anybody know of a company or perhaps a TW member that makes a bracket of some sort to hold a spare in the bed. Whether it goes in the bed rail or whatnot. Looking to upgrade all 5 wheels and dont think a bigger tire will fit under the bed.

    Avid makes a tire carrier that is secured by the bed rails.

    My Toyo M55 255/85/16 measured , when new, at 33.5" and fit in the stock location. You just have to gently massage the retainer tabs out slightly with a BFH. Don't over do it! The tabs bend out pretty easy, but they won't bend back so easily if you bend them too far. This is the voice of experience talking. The tire sits against my stock hitch and leaves plenty of clearance for the rear diff and exhaust. The exhaust tip doesn't ever get hot - so it isn't a big deal even if it touches the exhaust.

    a couple straps over the tire to the corner tie downs, and one across the tire to the bed rail worked for me. This was the old setup
