Spare Tire Carrier

I'm running 37's on my truck and have a spare (also 37") mounted in the truck bed using a Fabtech mount (angled). My problem is that the tire takes up most of my 6' bed. Has anyone come up with an ingenious way to mount these large spares yet still get some use out of the bed?

I heard you can fit a 37" tire in the stock spare spot

Spare

I measured where the original spare went. With my 4" pipe, it would be a very tight fit.
