Re: Will my spare tire carrier, hold a 35\"
Mine will definately fit a 35, of course it is the bed.
Having had to pull a spare out from under a van on the side of a road at 11pm in the rain, and knowing that offroad the conditions might be worse, I just pulled mine out from the bottom and threw it in the bed. I took a padlock and some 10,000lb rated chain and attached it to one of the tie down points in the front of the bed. It isn't going anywhere without someone doing some work for it (not to mention you can't see it with my toneau now), and if I ever need to use the whole bed, I still have the mechanism down there to put the spare back down there.
Your exhaust routing and trailer hitch would probably be the main problems with putting it under the body. Side Note: I did once see a 31x13.5 Swamper under a Toyota's bed like this once. Was funny as hell, thing stuck down past the trailer hitch and I was sure it would rub the diff if he ever compressed the rear much, but I gave him points for not just putting it on one of those cheesy "PreRunner" mounts like everyone else in SoCal.[img]images/graemlins/smirk.gif[/img]
