I plan on mounting my spare tire in the rear of the jeep. Just looking for suggestions. Thanks.

Here is how mine was mounted in the CJ7, it was two wide to fit down between the fenderwells, so it was just above them and still had room for storage under the spare.

Thanks. I do remember seeing yours [img]images/graemlins/smile.gif[/img] I also know that you have a fuel cell under your tire. Is it in the way of filling it up? My thinking is that I want to keep my 34x9.50 swamper spare above the fenders like yours.. So that I can still run a deck cover under it. Do you have any pictures of your setup looking down comparing the tire location compared to your fuel cell location?
Thanks

It currently still has the stock gas tank in it, and fills in the stock location, when I redo the back half in the next few weeks I will be going to install the fuel cell, but that hasn't happened yet.

Oh, I thought you already had it in there. You've mentioned it a few times I think then... Anyhow, What do you plan on doing with the filler for the cell when you have the tire above it..

My thinking is to build a cross bar basically like what you did but be able to lift the tire up if I need to get to the tank to fill it. Not sure yet.
