Default BIGGER spare tire & Tow Package

So... I'm looking for a new (used) 4X4 DC. Mine was stolen a few weeks ago (Thatís another thread). Anyway, I was wondering if I found one that has the Tow Package on it, will this effect my plans of going to larger tires (32") and a larger spare tire. I've never looked under a Tacoma that had a tow package. Are there any mounting points that will impede a larger spare tire. Thanks.

I'm pretty sure that the trailer hitch won't affect the room you'll have for a spare tire. If I'm not mistaken the brackets which hold the spare are the same size on all the prerunner and 4x4 tacos, and they can be bent to allow for up to a 33" spare.

I'm not having any problems what-so-ever finding a DC. Unfortunately, they are all Prerunners. I am however having major problems finding one that is a 4X4 with TRD! One was in New Mexico. I'm in California! I did find one, but it was red. Iím not a big fan of red. Maybe the new Jeep Unlimited Rubicon is calling my name??
