Does a 35in tire need the extension for the spare?

The third brake light seems close on my stock 32's.
I just bought 35's,,do I need the extension bracket for the spare?

personally I wouldnt hang that big of a tire on the stock mount cause it will wear out your tailgate but I do think it will fit...

My 35 BFG MT fits perfectly. With properly backspaced wheels.

Yes, you will need to extend your third brake light, or go with one that mounts in the center of the spare.

And I too would be a bit worried about using the stock spare holder. It'll start "tincanning" back there, and it'll pull the metal of the tailgate out, then in, then out. Eventually it'll do some damage.

LOTS of spare tire carrier options on the market. And you know I gotta tell you that we make one. :-)
