Where does my 35" spare go?

I'm getting ready to go up from the stock tires to 35 inch tires. I wanted to order five wheels and tires and was a little worried about the 35 inch spare not fitting the factory spare tire location.

Will it fit with or without some mods?

Thanks.

Oh, and can someone tell me why I don't have permission to look at everyone's garage? New guy thing?

I can confirm that a 35" spare will NOT fit in the stock spare location. My dad has the 20" rims on 33" tires and the spare which is an 18" with 33" tire rubs the back side of the hitch.

The 35'' will not fit a 33'' is the largest that can be placed in the stock location. there are a couple of different options to puting it in the bed 1) is fabtech has a flat and angle mount for tires i beleive up to a 37'' 2) a company called 'Tire Gate' also makes a tailgate replacement for our trucks that still works as a tailgate.

That for the most part is 100% correct. However you can mount up to a 35" tire in the stock spare tire location AS LONG AS YOU HAVE AN AFTERMARKET EXHAUST which routes more away from your spare tire location.

The other options are correct as you previously listed. I looked into all options and the Fabtech in bed kits are the cheapest and best ways to go about securing a spare into your bed.

I dont understand i have tried to put a 35'' in the stock location before and it didnt fit becaude of the tow package. Do you have to relocate it?

Thanks guys. I will try and take WRS8574's input and really try to get it mounted in the stock location after I throw down for exhaust.

WRS, what brand exhaust do you have or is the important part the installer?

Thanks guys.
