Spare location

I saw a guy that lives in my old apartment complex with a spare in the bed of his duramax 2500 which sat like they have on the baja trucks. I was wondering what you guys do with your big spares or do any of you carry one?

I was looking into something like this or similar. Ideas/opinions?

Mine just stays in the bed of my truck since I turned the factory spare tire location into a mounting area for a second 32 gallon fuel tank.

I was just thinking about what I would do the other day..... I have the factory spare but I am rolling 35" tires so I thought maybe I will keep the best of the old ones when I go get new ones and use it as a spare. I wonder if it will fit in the stock location though

I have a 35x12.5r17 mounted on my factory steel spare wheel still mounted in stock location under my 05. I know of a few that have a 37" under there.

I left my factory spare there until I put new tires on earlier this year. I used the factory spare steel wheel and used one of my old 35's. The tire guy did not recommend it because of a wide tire on a narrow wheel but did it anyways. Knock on wood that I will never have to use it.
