You put a tire in the tub with you when you take a bath? Odd. Ya I can see how that would sacrifice some space. :P

^^ haha.


I guess it's not the space that bothers me, but imagine getting in a wreck with a 33 inch tire and steel rim chilling directly behind your seat. Hmm. Thought about just strapping it down and making a shelf that goes above it, but then I said screw it I'll just put it back on the tailgate when it gets replaced

There are some cool ways to do it.

I thought about doing this awhile back. Even had a thread going about it on MJR. It would ride a lot better with the spare in the tub but then your screwed when you want to load up for a trip. Just takes to much room.

The mod I'm getting done is out boarding my rear shocks and getting rid of the arched rear springs.

I'm designing a deck lid/locking trunk w/ topside storage rack for my JKU, thought about moving spare in underneath.

There are some really cool pics I've seen online. I thought art had some pics one time of tires mounted in the back were the cargo space is at a 45 degree angle. Also seen hard tops that have that 45 degree angle in the back window and a tire was mounted on it. Looked cool but not sure the functionality is there.

Or on top. The storage can then be underneath... Much better.

True, but then you lose the visibility gained by dropping tire in tub and also trust the weight of your spare to the flimsy sheet metal of the tub lip. No bueno.

I was thinking your JK's are set up a little stiffer in the rear for pulling trailers?

Whats your reasoning behind the jeep riding better with the spare in the tub? I have the bad wheel in the tub right now (laying flat) and sometimes I feel like its a little smoother on roads but I think its just me.. Can't see how it would change anything being just on the other side of the tailgate.
