I purchased an Excursion about month or so ago and although I love this car there is one thing that keeps bothering me. The spare tire being placed behind the driver side rear wheel well. It is a bit of an obstruction in the rear view mirror. What I was wondering is there a such thing as a spare tire relocation kit?

Reunel Extreme Heavy Duty Bumpers

Check swing away carriers under rear bumpers.
If he objects to the rear view obstruction of the stock spare tire mount the Reunel swing out is 10 times worse.

Harley-Boy, I would suggest you leave the spare tire where it is and forget you have an inside mirror. Learn to use the outside mirrors, they're all you need. I never look at my inside mirror.

Well the one thing that never occurred to me is that I have no wife/girlfriend much less children:(. My roommate told me why not just put it behind the front seats. Or look into taking the spare tire mount off a an actual Super Duty. But Maybe PGreenSTV is right in a truck that big I should forget about the rear view and just use the side view mirrors. Or it just takes some more getting use to.

Get the custom relocation kit where the tire goes in the garage. Ya sure, put it in the truck for longer trips. But just cruising around day to day do you really need it?
