I've been trying to plan for the right tire size to get and would still like to keep the spare in the stock location around town like you mentioned. So I have asked this question before and for the most part the answer is yes it has been done. However, I have never gotten a straight answer on the 35's fitting under there with a factory style hidden tow hitch. That is still questionable. If you don't have a hitch I have read some people just cut off the brackets that hold the stock spares in place and other have mentione relocating the drop down cable mount slightly to have more room between things like leaf springs, exhaust, and shocks at full flex and so on,.. but here is a bump for someone who may have already done this and not just hear say since I am curious to know as well.
