Spare Size ??

Im Running 33x12.50's & My Spare Is Stock, If I Get A Flat Im Screwed. So I Was Wondering Will My Talegate Hold Up If I Mount A 31x10.50 On It ? If So Will I Be Allright Running 1 --31 & 3 --33's For A Week Or So Untill A New Tire Comes In . (IF IT CANT BE FIXED) I Have Road Hazzard That Covers Anything That Cant Be Repaired & I GET A NEW TIRE FREE OF CHARGE , But Takes About A Week To Get The Tires In (not In StocK)

I HAVE OPEN FRONT & REAR AXELES

With open rears you'll have no problem other than looking funny and if you need to get home who cares about looks

I have a 32 spare on my gate and have no problem. Like what he says might look weird but who cares if you get home

Just take it easy and don't run too hard, and a 31-32 should be okay. I wouldn't run one longer than a week or so. You'll probably want to get an alignment when you get the new tire installed.

I've carried a 31" spare out back for quite some time. The only problem thus far is I have to lift up on the tailgate to shut it.

I've heard that a tire within 3 inches of the rest is ok for temporary use, with open diffs.

I have a 31 inch tire mounted on a stock wheel that I use as my spare and I didn't have to modify anything to make it fit. The only thing you will probably need to do is extend the third brake light like you mentioned already.
