35"x12.5"x20" will fit, factory spare location

for all of those running 35"s on factory 20s. It will fit in the factory spare location. It is very close but fits nicely under the truck.

I recently thought about how i was taking a risk not having a 35" tire to swap out if one went down and decided to get a spare 20" rim and tire.

I also took out the silly key thingy that requires a special tool to lower the spare. I instead opted for a cable and a lock. Easier and no key to break leaving me stranded.

Do you have the truck tuned? Would the tire and rim fit with 5" exhaust?

yes it is and I have 5" exhaust. It fits. The tire touches the hitch and then has about 1 1/2" between it and the heatshield for the exhaust.

Perfect thanks. I have a full size 35x12.50R20 tire just sitting in my shed waiting to try and mount.

good deal, its not worth trashing a rear end when the tires we're running will fit under there.

I would take out that key thing that goes into the winch so that you don't have issues later. Its super easy. Just pop off the black guide tube and then use a large screw driver to pry out the key. Then you can use the handle only to get the tire down. My key stripped after raising and lowering the heavier tire a bunch just to see how it handled the wieght.

Now with the key out it does just fine.
