I built a fiberglass enclosure for a sealed 15" where the spare used to live. It sounds AWESOME. I elevated it about a foot above the floor as I was building some storage drawers as well. It turned out quite good. Still a bit of final finish work to be done, but the performance is good even with a lot of crap in the truck.
The spare tire issue remains a question for me. If Cross Enterprises would answer their phone, I would like to pay them some money for a good bumper w/ carrier. I talked with Mike over a year ago, but now they don't answer the phone or return calls. FRUSTRATION! I have thought about putting the spare on the roof, but it weighs TOO MUCH (325/60-18) and I don't want to further destroy my fuel mileage (Cary's suspension mods have worked great, but the lifted truck dropped a couple of mpg on the road).
