Spare Tire Mount In The Bed

Due to some recent mods, I had to push the 5" MBRP exhaust back abound 2".

By doing so, I had to completely remove the spare tire that was mounted in the stock location, under the bed.....not much good the stock LT265 tire would do me anyways, oh well

So, I want to find a used 37" tire and mount it in the bed, someway.....somehow

I remember they used to make a clamp for the bed rails, which had a few automotive stlye studs that would securely mount a spare tire. Does anyone know what I am talking about or where I can find such a mount?

Or, are there any other options I might look in, that will not take up huge amounts of space.....I was hoping to mount it on the front passenger side of the bed, infront of the wheel well area:





I bought a 6' pieice of a Masterlock 1/2", rubber coated cable to lock the spare up with. Plus, I have a cap covering the bed, that is also always locked

Lastly, does anyone know what width the stock spare wheel is and if I can mount a 37x12.50 R17 tire onto it?

Thanks for any and all info!

Well since you have a shell on the truck you couldnt look at the tire gate option. But if you have a welder of know a buddy that does you could fab up pretty much exactly what you are looking for. Coat it with bed liner and bolt it in. I know there are some companies that make spare tire holders that bolt into your bed but i haven't seen one that mounts it to the side but they could be out there!

That looks good, but it says:

"Can be used with 14in. to 16.5in. wheels with a 7in. max. rim width"

I would be using a 17" wheel that is 8-8.5" wide
