I got the Fabtech flat spare mount. It would be very easy to make. The reason I did not pick the angle version was because I still use my bed and camp in it too. So with the flat mount, its flush to the bed, so you can take the spare out and still have nothing in the bed. Just a thought.

I made a couple for local trucks lately. It's not hard and takes about 4 hours.
The dimensions I used were 32" from leg to leg across the bottom, 34" from bottom to top (inverted V), 12" for the support post. I used a vertical tube welded to the legs at the mount point, then set it on pins that are welded vertically on a flat piece of plate. Bolt the plate to the bed floor so the carrier can be removed from the truck by pulling 3 pins.
The tire hold down plate gave me problems trying to cut out a good circle, I finally used a star tire Iron.
Cut the center out weld the butt ends on the sides of a short piece of tube and gusset between the bars.
Materials:
8' 1.5"x.095 tube
3' 1/8x4" flat plate
24" of 3/4" all thread
1 3/4" coupling nut
1 3/4" washer
1 Star tire iron
3 3/8" safety pins
9" 3/4 rod
Total cost $42.
PM me your email if you want pics of the finished product.

I got one that Steve at CBI Off-Road Fab. built that I would get rid of for $50 and shipping... I got a 35 on it now and fits fine.... If you go to the website there a quite a few pics of it. It is the one that is mounted in the bed of the white truck and has a high lift mount on it also...
