Spare in the tub

I getting ready for my first trail ride. I do have one issue, I do not have a proper mount for a 33 X 12.50 X 15 spare or money for one. My question what is the best way to secure spare in the tub. I am thinking ratchet straps to connected to the tie down points lying flat. My jeep is a 2006 TJ

Normally as long as you're spare is laying flat it doesn't move around to much, ratchet strap will do though. Best of luck

There's no info on the year of your Jeep. On my YJ I'm planning on using the bolt hole in the middle of the floor that the rear seat belt buckles bolted into. Come up with some kind of long wing nut type bolt and a centering cone kinda thing like from a Cherokee and just scerw the thing to the floor. That way if ya need to haul something you just remove the spare and you're back to the flat floor without any loops or brackets in the way. What part of Ohio are you in? I'm in the Cleveland area.

Well, considering we're in the TJ forum, it's probably a 97-06. Just saying, not trying to be a smart a.

Strap it down with several straps and don't roll your Jeep. Flops are okay though.
