Question Spare Tire Holder For Bed

I've had my train horns for quite some time now, but reality has finally reared it's ugly head & I'm looking for a solution to a small problem. Now that the horns themselves have taken over the space of where the spare tire was once located, I'm going to need a holder of some sort to keep the spare tire in place inside the bed. I'm just worried that one day, I'll have to stop short & my spare's gonna come sliding up & destroy my air compressor(mounted @ the head of the bed). I saw something in a Diesel World or Diesel Power mag, where there was an advertisement for a spare tire holder that swivels out for easy access, but I can't find that issue & of course, it wasn't an ad it was just a quick feature DW or DP was showing.

Does anyone know what this product is or something similar? I want to buy something I can just bolt in before I'd have to fabricate something, y'know?

got a friend that built one for his toyota. Looks good. If you have a gooseneck of fifth wheel you could make one that would mount up to that and you could take it in and out easily.

It's lookin' like I'll have to make one. I actually don't have a 5th, so I'd have to go with the swivel.

What about one of those retro style carriers that hold the tire vertically in front of the wheel well?

I'll have to get the materials together. I imagine, anyway, that the actual bolt on would be an arm & leg.

Only if I had shiny fiberglass-belted radials with gigantic whitewalls. Gotta look fancy, Mike.

I could live with that. But to be even more fancier(& vintage), I'm gonna hafta duct tape some BIG fenders on it for that ultimate Tin Lizzy or Triumph look.
