Considering doing a lift...

Hi, all. I'm new to the world of jeeps and recently bought a 98 ZJ to use for my daily work commute (5 miles round trip) and for my Search and Rescue work.

I'm considering getting it lifted and throwing some 31's on it but being a little green I was wondering if a 31 spare will fit in the cargo area side spare mount?

I searched the FAQ but couldn't find a clear cut answer. Anyone know if it will fit?

up to 33's fit IIRC. But my 31' is strapped into stock location.
1995 ZJ Limited-3.5" Rubicon Express, 33x12.5s and some other stuff. Maybe half of it works, but it stops so that helps.
