Re: Front bumper mounted spare tire

Used to see just such a spare tire mount style on the earlier square body trucks in the late 70s into the 80s. Was quite popular then with the amount of bed mounted cab over campers of the times. Good advice about the spacing out from the grill for air movement. Be sure you have a good radiator/fan shroud and proper fan/clutch and water pump. Don't see it much today but used to be quite prevalent on the road. Thinking welded braces and upright coming up off the front frame horns is the ticket. Good luck.
