Why you shouldn't:
More difficult to get to if you need to use it.
Lowers mpg by a few miles.
Creates an even more top heavy center of gravity.
Its not hard to get to..I open the pass door,step up, unlock the lock, throw it down, never had a problem...
I drive a 5.2 gas guzzler...a few miles of worse gas mileage more than compensates for the room in the back
I'm never really in a position as to where that tire screws up my balance, so, its ok for me...never had a problem...
And ya Paddingtonbear, She aint very big...like 5'5 110lbs? And I'm 5'8 140, so..no problem sleeping...I can stretch my feet out easy and not hit my head
