Why? It'll probably fit in the stock spare location. I have a 35 down there and it's never been a problem.

I just went and looked under the truck. It looks like the previous owner cut the mounts out.

Are you looking for the braces that hold the tire in place or the cranking mechanism? I got both, make an offer. I am in El Paso.

If the little winch deal is still in there you can make it work.

Default Fitting 33" spare under bed

Dick,

Are you doing anything special to get the 35" spare to fit down ther?

I have a 33" spare, and I tried to fit it under there, but I quickly found that the mounting/bracing brackets for the (31") spare is too narrow.

Any suggestions on how to get a 33" to fit down there?

Thanks

Khanh

Khanh,

Just flatten out the braces where they bend down. That should still keep the tire steady.

Dick, Didn't you say all you have to do is pull the brackets off and remount them to make the 35 fit?

Yep. All you do is unbolt the two arms, lay them on the new spare while it's laying flat on the ground. Measure the arms for a new bolt center dimension. Transfer that measurement, find the center of the cross arm and then transefer the bolt center and drill for the mounting bolts and bolt them up. As it comes stock the arms are a little off center toward the drivers side so you can get it better centered while you're at it. I wish you could flip the hoist 180 degrees too but it won't work that way. However it's works OK as there is enough cable on it.

It works better if you just relocate the arms for a larger tire. It's real easy to do.

Cool, Maybe I can get that done this weekend. I really don't care half the time. (like wheeling) But when I'm just taking the quad out. It would be nice not to worry about it being in the way. I'm sure I would drop it down and throw it in the bed if I'm doing a difficult trail that might make it hard to drop it on the trail.

Having the bed space is nice. At first I worried that it would be in the way and a problem hanging down there but it hasn't been so far.
