Remembering pictures of old military jeeps with the spare mounted on the side, wondering 'why not'? I like to change things up on my '91 every so often and aside from the spare on the tailgate or topside, thinking about what a side mount on a YJ would look like. Thoughts/pictures?

I don't have any pics but there is a chance running around here with a side mounted spare if I see it I will take a pic.
But I personal don't like it, it seams that it would b a blind spot and in the way for going down trails. I think the rear Mount is the best place for a spare, most convent and out of the way. The roof mount I would think would be a big pain in the but, but I'm short and not the strongest guy out the there so it would never work for me. I suppose you could mount it in the front as long as it didn't block the the headlights and marker lights and as long as it didn't block airflow it would be something different.
