35 inch tire fit on stock spare tire mount?
Have a 33 on it now but need a 35. Will it fit? I don't mind removing the 3rd brake light if neccessary!

Pretty sure the rear bumper is in the way for a 35... Someone else may know for sure..

35 is also gona be a bit to much for the stock tailgate to handle. might even end up ripping the thing off its hinges

Dont do it. It will start to ruin your tailgate.

What is the cheapest way to be able to mount a 35 back there? Replace the bumper?

swing out tire carrier is gona be cheapest. price will depend on what company you go with, however you get what you pay for, so the really cheap stuff is gona be a pretty low quality product as well

Any links to one you may recommend? Thank you all for the replies

kjonwg 05-01-2010 06:56 PM if you have a welder and want to build it yourself they sell the whole kit for like 90 bucks.

Warn makes a good one, but its not cheap (figure $800ish). Very solid but a bit of a PITA to install and the instructions were somewhat lacking.
