Been reading a few threads , and everyone seem to agree that the 33's fit under the X , so that answered my question.
Anyone running this setup post pics and can the "flimsy" hoist chaine take the weight or does it need to be ungraded?

If ayone has a hoist collecting dust (in good working condition, I might be interested). Kinda done with the Spare tire on roof.

thx

My 33" fit under there - but I keep it in the back of the Xterra when I go off-road.
I dont want to hit the one tire I'll really need on a rock. Thats some bad juju.
I mounted it under before I went out because I didn't have space inside. One of the trails I scuffed it and although I had no damage at all I can't wait for the MaxTerra bumper to show. Had just bought the tires the week prior and I was paranoid after that.

Will it fit with PRG shackles and OME leafs?
That shouldn’t be an issue. Mine above has PRG shackles on lowest hole and rebuilt leaves that have the OME HD conversion leaf in it. The issues I think people would have are clearances against a hitch like mine and the brake lines at the pumpkin. My 33’s actually touch my hitch at the receiver hole but still mount straight and tight.

Now for the Nike commercial:

Should have no problem. I have 285/75/R16 KO2s and the spare fits fine, but it is up against my maxgear bumper. I also have PRG adjustable shackles set to the middle position and remote resi piggyback Radflo 2.0 shocks. I’ll try to snap a picture tomorrow.

For those that off road and get all flexed out, do you have issues with the tire contacting the differential. Mine was contacting it so I removed it and out it in the back taking up a ton of storage space. Did I just misalign it when putting it on?

I've never had my diff touch my spare. You probably need to bring it as far back up against the bumper as you can get it, while you're cranking it up.

Alright, I'll have to give this a try again. Getting ready to move and would really like to get the spare back under there to free up more room inside.

I just pull it back towards the bumper while raising the spare.

If there is a little incidental contact or rubbing between the tire and the diff, I doubt there'd be any real problems or cause for concern. Are you worried about wearing the tire unevenly?

I can take some pictures when I get home but my diff cover is leaking a bit and there has definitely been contact between the spare and the diff cover. Enough that the contact area looks polished.
