Re: spare tire in the bed...

The same spare tire bracket for mounting the spare in the bed used on later model fleetside trucks bolts into ours. Look for the two holes spaced about 4" apart just in front of the wheel tubs. I haven't installed mine yet but there an exact fit.

Re: spare tire in the bed...

What if you take another wheel tub and turn it upsidedown?
