Spare Tire Carrier

I just put 31's on my Jeep and I would like to put the same size spare on. My question is looking at the carrier, it doesnt look like the 31" spare will fit the carrier with the third brake light in place. Any ideas?

The 3rd brakelight will work fine, the 31" is only 1/2" taller than a factory 30" wheel from where it mounts to top next to the brake light. In fact, not even a 32x11.50 tire blocks the 3rd brake light, I ran that size tire and it was fine as that was only 1" taller from its mount to the top of the tire. The 3rd brake light has enough clearance for even that size.

I have a 31x10.50x15 mounted now and it fits fine.
