i have a 33" inplace of my stock spare.just wondering if the stock carrier can stand that extra weight.looks to me that the tire moves alot more than the stocker did.i did bend the bends to make room for the 33,maybe put a spacer there to fill the difference?

There are people on this board who have squeezed 35" tires in there with no failures. The winch is quite stout.

Hytenor put a 40 in I think but he changed to location of the brackets and beefed up the bar where they are attached with some extra steel.

I've got a 33 under mine. You just need to pull the brackets off and bend them out. The tire winch will hold it.

Yep ^^^
Anything that hangs lower then the rear bumper... The forward edge of the tire is fine... it's the trailing edge that blows...

I scrape and bang plenty of things... But...
it reallys sux when you cut a tire down and go to put on the spare and find out you cut the sidewall on that as well... think ;)

Now a 33/1050 don't hang too low...

But my 285 does... as well as the 1250 I'm sure...

just the new 35. I welded in some 3/16" plate to the upper xmember to stiffen things up and re-spaced the brackets to better center the tire between the springs. so far...so good.
