Just take off the spare. Takes 2 min. The bolts on the rack are 1/2"

Or.... http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&c...re&spell=1#p=1

From when I used to run spareless. I put the original bolts back in to fill the holes. You can get bolts from the hardware store to fill the tire-bumper holes.

I went out to Lowes or Homedepot and got plastic plugs. They're in the hardware section.

I used a clay bar to get the majority of that off my tailgate. After 3 treatments you hardly notice it.

x2. I just put the original bolts back in.
There's also a rubber plug on the inside of the tailgate that fits in the hole for the 3rd brake light wires.

You guys are brave.Im too chicken to run w/o a spare.Most of my wheeling is done 1.5 to 2.0 hrs from home.I guess since I have onboard air & a plug kit a major blowout would be the worst,which is what would happen to me.

oh, i forgot to mention, x3, i just put the original bolts back in the holes and the rubber plug from the tailgate back where the 3rd brake light wire ran through the tailgate....i keep a tire plug kit and compressor with me everywhere i go and have free towing through my insurance in the event of a total blow out...didn't like the look of the 29" spare on the back and can't use that with 33's anyway....just didn't want to spend $380 on a matching 5th wheel and tire what would just end up dry rotting on me....

Or too Smart.
Lots of very cool ideas and sharp looks presented here...... and for around town it's OK?
If traveling to get on trails or going far off road, I think your living too close to the edge!
