Was wondering if anyone knows the maximum size tire I can fit under the truck in the stock location... thanks.

My 285/75R16 BFG MT fit (w/ tow hitch). The one thing I noticed after I took it down was that it was starting to rub through the e-brake cable. If I was to do it again I would figure out a way to keep the line away from the tire.

It also rubs on the bars above it that it sets against, despite the rubber protectors. The stock location kind of sucks, Reach down between your legs, if you find something, order a shrockworks rear bumper with tire carrier. He hee. Just an Idea.

How to here:

But the 285 75 16 will fit with a hitch and maybe a little more. Mine fit good.

For off-roading it really is best to get your spare out from under your vehicle. Nothing worse than needing your spare and being up to your axles in mud. You can do what pony did until Jim built him a tire carrier big enough: Keep your spare in the rear. But then you lose gear space...
