I have a 32'' spare tire one the stock tire carrier all the weight sits on top of my aftermarket bumper and there is no wobble what so ever.
i guess my question is will i ever hit the tire off road.
i tend to wheel alot of wooded trails and there are some muddy ledges etc i would drop down or go up and i am worried i might drag the tire on the ground damaging my tailgate etc....
is there anyone out there that has done this??
also is there any way to raise it up on a budget....i can buy a different rear bumper with a tire carrier but dont want to fork over that kinda money. does the best top tire carrier work better? or should i just not worry about it.
what if i run a 1 in drop hitch flipped over to protect the rest of the bottom edge of the tire? is that a good idea?
