Lifted trucks... What to do with spare tire?

Guys,

Was just wondering what everyone with lifts and bigger wheels are doing about have a full size spare with them?

Where are you putting it and how is it attached?

i have a 4 inch lift with 35s and a stock spare tire..i had to use it before i bought the new wheels and tires..i was missing 1 out of 3 of the pieces that make up the spare lock key..so i went down to harbor freight, bought a cable cutter..and the rest is history..now it sits in my bed..tied with a rope to the bed hook..but yes i would like to know from other ppl too....
