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....

I dont carry a spare around town, but bring one with me if I travel more than about 50-75 miles away...as well as a battery impact and good jack.

I have been wanting to get a little 1 1/2 ton jack from the local autoparts store and a DeWalt battery impact for a long time for this very reason too. nothing would suck worse than trying to change a wheel in the freezing mud with a stupid factory jack and that lame *** wrench...

A friend of mine has a 35 hung under his truck in the stock location, but his exhaust exits infront of the rear tire. I have 37's and I carry a 35 inch spare in the bed. I plan on putting it back underneath as soon as I get antoher mount and rerout my exhaust.

I just carry a tire plug kit and a good air compressor that handle the big tires to get me home. So far I have not needed it yet
